Trying to make parallax interactions on Webflow? Here’s a list of the best free webflow parallax scrolling cloneables that you can clone and use on your website right away...

Best Webflow Parallax Animation Cloneables

While most effects created using Webflow interactions are considered to be “web animations’ only Lottie animation cloneables and parallax animation utilise actual classic animation principles.

Everything else is usually simple motion graphics, or in other words… Just because it moves, doesn’t mean it’s animated. To understand how the parallax effect works and which examples are good animated ones and which ones are just “things moving” - you have to understand how parallax animation works (check out this video.) 

We made this list of cloneables that will take both pros and beginners through the wonderful world of parallax animation in Webflow!

Free Parallax Animation Cloneables for Webflow

Because the parallax animation effect simply takes 2D elements and makes them “feel 3D” by moving them at different rates, it’s easy to fail in proper execution, especially when talking about the quality of any cloneable. 

Parallax effect in Webflow is all about that precision when it comes to relative movement of different elements on the page. So let's jump in! Here are the 5 cloneables we will be diving into: 

  • Best animated 3D parallax effect, that uses a single page trigger interaction (in other words, most quality result with least amount of work!)
  • Parallax cloneable that shows why it’s important for foreground and background elements to be very different in contrast
  • Beginner parallax image interaction (start with this one if you never tried Webflow interactions before)
  • Inverse parallax effect (instead of distance, you feel depth)
  • Custom code parallax animation that utilises no webflow native components (for advanced users who have to get deep into code that makes these effects a reality)

Parallax Mouse Over Element Cave Animation Cloneable by Jerome Bergamaschi

https://showcased.webflow.io/projects/Fullscreen-Parallax-Interaction

This parallax mouse over element position interaction has everything you need from a great parallax effect in your hero section. If you never built a parallax interaction or just need a good starting point - clone this section to get it started!

This section has 7 simple PNG images with different carved spaces so you can easily create your own moving hero section that will feel animated with this simple technique. Great cloneable for beginners and even experienced Webflow designers that don’t want to start making it from scratch.

What is in this parallax?

Multiple PNG images stacked on top of each other that move differently based on mouse movement to create this animated parallaxing effect.

What is this parallax best for?

✅ Any type of hero section where you want to allow users to feel depth in the website.

Pros Cons
✅ Very well executed unique animation effect ❌ It works on the opposite mindset of what parallax actually is - in this cloneable furthest objects move the most to create the feeling of depth
✅ Clean work that is easy to dissect and recreate for any type of parallax project

Bottom line:

😎 Use this parallax if you want a clean cloneable that is easy to clone, reuse and edit. Also use it if you need a good learning cloneable to learn more about how to set up your own parallax effect with Webflow interactions,

Custom Code Round Parallax Draggable Carousel Slider Cloneable by Veza Digital

https://showcased.webflow.io/projects/round-parallax-slider-cloneable

This is an advanced, completely fully custom coded slider for Webflow. It’s so much custom coded that the Webflow project of this cloneable looks like just a blank white body with one single HTML embed inside it. 

If that sounds like something you would enjoy getting your hands on, this is the right parallax cloneable for you. It creates this amazing gallery slider effect that works flawlessly. 

What is in this parallax?

Draggable carousel parallax effect of a single gallery of images that has the effect of spinning in a circle while you browse them.

What is this parallax best for?

  • Custom code projects that would benefit from this particular effect
Pros Cons
✅ Very smooth transition and animation ❌ Not for beginners or maybe even intermediate users (depending on custom code knowledge)
✅ Intuitively built draggable UI that is clear for any user

Bottom line:

😎 Use this parallax if you liked the spinning gallery effect and would like to learn more about how to custom code something like this. Be ready to play with embed, head and body code a lot.

Beginner Parallax Image Scroll Animation Cloneable by Eve Kayser

https://showcased.webflow.io/projects/Parallax-Effect-kwmi1t1f

This is the most simple and basic parallax effect on this list, so if you are a beginner this cloneable should be the one you start with. Skip this one if you have some experience with Webflow interactions and have built a parallax effect before. 

This cloneable utilises simple Webflow interactions to set differences in image movement while scrolling down the page. As simple as that, you will be able to create that trendy feeling in your next project and learn how simple it is to do that while you are doing it! 

What is in this parallax?

A few images that have different image scroll speeds set as a move scroll action.

What is this parallax best for?

  • Beginners trying to understand how parallax effect is set up with Webflow interactions
Pros Cons
✅ Simple to understand ❌ Very simple, has no value to you if you have built multiple animations using Webflow interactions from scratch before
✅ Great learning cloneable
✅ Easy to reuse in your next website project

Bottom line:

😎 Use this parallax if you are interested in how this “unequal scrolling” parallax effect can be done with Webflow interactions.

Dimmed Mountain View Parallax Backround Animation Cloneable by Andreas

https://showcased.webflow.io/projects/parallax-breathing-mountains

While this might not seem like much for web designers that are used to moving and changing shapes, with loads of interactivity - this is actually the best example on this list from animators perspective. 

Biggest problem when creating parallax effects are the correct tones and shading in each and every layer of the image you create. This project got it right and should be analysed for that!

What is in this parallax?

Mouse position movement based (up and down) mountain parallax effect for an interactive background.

What is this parallax best for?

  • Projects that need a hero or background animation with parallax effect based on vertical mouse movement and positioning.
Pros Cons
✅ Flawlessly executed from classic parallax animation rules perspective (dimmed background, etc) ❌ Might feel a bit boring for some design devs as the movement is very subtle, but you can definitely spice it up fast
✅ Setup creates different background views when being scaled responsively due to image placements ❌ Missing horizontal mouse movement interactions

Bottom line:

😎 Use this parallax cloneable for Webflow if you are looking for a more classic parallax approach that comes from the world of animation, not web design. Also use it if you need a background animation with a well executed parallax effect.

3D Effect with Parallax Animation Cloneable by Pablo Stanley

https://showcased.webflow.io/projects/rotational-parallax-illustrations

Everyone wants to learn 3D animation, because it feels smoother than 2D. Well the problem is, that to create 3D depth, we are going to use 2D animation parallax principles whether we like it or not. 

This cloneable is a direct example of why this is the case. 2D illustrations inside a 3D world? How? You will find out if you study this cloneable very carefully. It if clicks to you how 3D is just 2D objects behaving according to certain, well calculated rules - you will feel like a 3D Webflow pro from now on!

What is in this parallax?

A great example of 3D parallax effect that has been achieved with 2D illustrations.

What is this parallax best for?

  • Learning more about 3D parallax effect
  • Learning more about best animation practises and how they can be rendered with Webflow interactions
  • Page trigger animation… Yes! This animation is not affected on element by element basis, it’s just a single page interaction that makes this happen
Pros Cons
✅ Insanely well executed ❌ Might feel like too simple of a solution for some web designers that feel like complex is better
✅ Smooth animation
✅ Don’t want to spoil it, but to set this effect up will take you 10 seconds as it only affects a single element with a specific mouse action - can you guess what element it affects?

Bottom line:

😎 Use this parallax if you think 3D has to be done in 3D. That’s not true and you will learn why if you analyse this cloneable well enough.
