Parallax effect is one of the fancy and modern looking effects which you can use in your layout. You can apply parallax effect on mouse move or scroll. You can easily add the 3D particles, or apply parallax effect for the section's background.
Also you can enable the Parallax effect feature for specific screen sizes like Desktop and Tablet.

Beware! Parallax effect element is a part of the JetElements. The JetElements plugin is bundled and recommended for Jupiter X. It can be installed via Jupiter X control panel as described here. But you can use parallax effect for the Section's background without JetElements and just with the Elementor's default options.
