Number of strips.
Size
Size of the strips.
Rel Height
Height of the strips relative to their width. Increase to make the strips taller.
Size Vary X & Y
Increase to make each strip randomly larger or smaller.
Angle
Angle of the strips with 0 being horizontal. The strips move along their angle, and also shift the image along the same angle.
Depth
Make the front most strips larger so it appears they're in front, simulating a 3d look.
Shift Amount
Sets how much the image shifts, or refracts, within each strip. Shifting is always along the major axis of the strip.
Shift Vary
Increase to make the amount of shift in each strip more random.
All Strips Shift X & Y
Move all strips around on the screen.
Z Dist
Zoom in or out on the image before applying the parallax strips.
Show

Result
Show the result of the effect.
Strips Over Source
Show each strip as a gray rectangle with brightness set by depth. Uncovered areas display the original image.
Strips Over Black
Show each strip as a gray rectangle with brightness set by depth. Uncovered areas display as black.
Wrap
Determines the method for accessing outside the borders of the image.
No
Produces black beyond the borders.
Tile
Repeats a copy of the image.
Reflect
Repeats a mirrored copy. Edges are often less visible with this method.
Seed
Used to initialize the random number generator. The actual seed value is not significant, but different seeds produce different results and the same value should give a repeatable result.
