    Drag an object side to side with limits

      Hi,

       

      I have a very specific need for a project  am working on.

       

      I need the used to be able to drag 3 layers, with a single touch, a set distance either direction on the x-axis.

       

      Ultimately I would like to have the 3 layers move at slightly different rates to create a parrallax effect.

       

      I figure the best way to do this would be to target the top layer for the dragging. Then code the other layers to move relative to the top layer's movement;

       

      something of the nature of  -

      if (layer1) moves in the x+ direction, then (layer2) moves (layer1 x -10) and (layer3) moves (layer2 x -10). And the reverse for x-.

       

      Does that make sense?

       

      Coming from animation rather than coding, I am finding it hard to get started with this one. I've picked up a lot very quickly so far but I can't seem to find anything anywhere to build off of.

       

      Thanks for your help,

      Justin
