Script has been modified to allow you to add the active
layer in your existing image to the animation and set its blend mode. You should do all the desired effects to create your active layer ("logo") first and adjust its size as desired because the script will use the dimensions of the "logo layer" to create the animation size and the logo will be positioned in the final animation where it's positioned in the original image. If you want to see how the final outcome will look without having to generate a complete animation, I've changed the script to let you just do a single layer image if you want.
Here's some new previews:Normal Mode Overlay ModeValue Mode
I'll add masking capability later (as void posted in his example), but that will be later....spent way too much time on this today.
Also, script 2.2 has NOT been updated yet.
Enjoy. Let me know if you have any suggestions.

I've now added functionality to allow the user to mask out an area. The mask doesn't have to be filled with a black background, it can simply be white on a transparent background. The example mask I've shown below is white on black for example purposes. Also, there are two options with the mask: a transparent background around the masked off area or filling the area outside of the masked area with color. In both cases, you need to select a background color. The reason for choosing a background color with the transparent option is to let GIMP fill in the anti-aliased areas with a little bit of color to help the animation blend in with the background and reduce jagged edges. So, if the background color on your web page is blue, choose a blue color. This will require some experimentation. Lastly, I've told the script to disable any selections that are active prior to running the script. They will be re-enabled after the script is run.

Let me know if the script causes any problems or if you'd like to see features improved/added. I'll do what I can. The script for 2.2 will be fixed later.
