Gimp 2.6.8 (Can't do anything with a layer after shearing it)

Gimp 2.6.8 (Can't do anything with a layer after shearing it)
Ok. I've been wondering about why I can't do anything with a layer created by the shear procedure in gimp. The code snipet that I'm trying to do isn't allowing me to set the opacity and I can't seem to anchor the layer created by shearing either and its frustrating me so badly. >.<

(set! layer (gimp-drawable-transform-shear-default
layer ORIENTATION-HORIZONTAL -50
FALSE TRANSFORM-RESIZE-ADJUST) ) ; finally shear it so it has the angle needed
(gimp-layer-set-opacity layer 70) ; set the opacity so it looks more like a shadow

What I'm trying to do this for is to test scripting out so I can do a mass shadow making script (don't like the one that is in gimp currently), but I can't even get it to work right on only one layer. Please help.

I've also spent 5 hours trying to search for why this is happening and can't seem to find an answer. : (

Ok found out that I needed to just put a car to get it to work (even though it doesn't return a list as far as I know. Still new to gimp scripting).
