    Hi Everyone,

    Im trying to make simple Parallax Scrolling with planes.

    If i stick in a plane and then i put a texture on it, the texture will appear upside down.

    So i have to rotate the plane to make the texture appear the correct way up....

    Is there something else i can do, other than rotating the plane?

    because i want to use these planes as scrolling backrounds and they are pointing the wrong way and stuff so i cant maniplulate the transforms - without expecting unusual results?

    Do i simply just use empty gameobject containers for the planes ?

    Thanks.

    John

    Simplest solution is just to flip the image (don't use JPG, you don't gain anything and you lose some quality).

    Set the scaling of the texture in the material to -1 in y direction.
