Yes, that was my unexpected result.

I set alpha transparency for single layer source.

So it was all opaque.

EDIT: And the images were s-RGB originally

Pro tip while executing Inter leave layers plugin:

Have only the xcf files open that require interleave plugin execution . Close all remaining files on current GIMP session when executing interleave layer plugin

For some reason, The plugin includes all the files open to its execution .

Will impact performance and will take longer to execute . The more files open, the longer the execution .

Close any file that is open before executing Interleave layers plugin

Strange...

Starting with:
  • a source image (the one from which you call the script), 4 layers of red
  • a provider image (the one you specify as providing the interleaved layers), 4 layers of blue
  • an innocent bystander image, 4 layers of green
And asking to interleave the blue  image in the red image with 50% opacity, I get an image with 4 purple layers, and not a hint of green, and the green image is unmodified.

   

So can you describe more in detail what you are doing and what the result is?

Its more of a performance issue than functional issue .


If i have 3 files open and want to execute interleave layer plugin only on 3rd file with animation frames in title mode , The other 2 files get included in the loop of execution which causes a performance overhead .

Takes longer for the pop up window to even appear .

OMG The forum is hanging .

I jus wanna attach screenshot 2.

As seen in screenshot 2 , The other unwanted file is included in the loop.

Ah, that is different, the layers of the other images are not included in the created files, but are offered as a choice by the startup dialog, which is expected since you can use any layer from any open image as a title (along as it has the right size). So yes, if you have many images with many, many frames open, this will take time, and create a rather long list... I plead not guilty Smile


PS: a screenshot is better uploaded as a PNG. Somewhat smaller (692K vs 1.1M).
