Animated Gif with a fixed layer
Hi All,

I'm a new comer to using GIMP, but i'm finding my way around pretty well so far and enjoying it all!

so my question is, i'm creating an animated GIF file, and i'd like to have some "Lens Flare" over laid on the whole thing. obviously when I create a new layer on the top of the rest of the layers, it just creates another slide in the animated GIF. is there anyway, that I can tell it to overlay that one layer on the whole animation?

I've attached what I've got so hopefully you can see what i'm getting at!

RE: Animated Gif with a fixed layer
Thanks OfNuts and iForStyle007 for your replies. I think i'm still doing something wrong, or maybe it's just something wrong with the whole way that i'm trying to do this operation. The animated logo in the banner is just a small portion of the whole image size. I've placed the lens flare halfway across the join of the two. so i'm getting a duplication of the lens flare 60 times (in the background portion) which looks awful! I think I may have to rethink the whole thing. but thanks very much for your plugin, I'm sure it'll be useful for something!
