How to set a parallax background for a section in WordPress with Nimble Builder ?

Nimble Builder allows you to set an image or video backgrounds to your sections, columns and modules. When using an image background, you can enable a parallax effect on scroll.

The parallax effect is commonly used in web design to create appealing pages. When enabled, the background image moves slower than the other page elements when scrolling.

You can see the effect in action here, or here.
