I saw not too long ago someone posted a video they had made where is was a series of images which had been edited to look like it was kind of 3D. I assume it was made using layers and then moving the layers separately from each other to create this kind of motion that gave the picture and a slight movie look. I can't explain it any better than that and I've tried searching for it again but no luck. Can anyone tell me what this effect is called and where I can find an example of it?

Here's one I did some time back. (external link)

The main issue is having sufficient overlap between your foreground objects and the back ground. This you can either do by having a different background image or compressing the original image horizontally so the final frame of the pan ends up with all the elements in their original position - or you do it the other way around so the first frame is the original image and the plates run to overlap each other.

Obviously you need to cut out each layer and create a mask or (easier) save it as a png with the alpha so transparent is transparent.

You could then keyframe each plate as a separate line on your video editor. This is fine if you are only using 2 layers but with three or more the speed relationship between each layer becomes more hit and miss.

Because I work with 3D most days I put each layer as a plane in virtual space and used a virtual camera to pan across them - but you need the software to do this. I did it in 3DS Max but After Effects or HitFilm would both do it.

I only ever did this clip as the image trimming is quite time consuming. A nice effect though.
