Animation tools

Hi,

I made a plug-in in python that will give you some animation tools. It are just some simple script I made. Perhaps if people like it, I can make more.

The tools will be put in a main menu called "Anitools". Currently it contains three scripts:
- Add alpha to all layers
- Export all layers as PNG
- Rename all layers

Examples:

Transparency cropper

Transparency crop script by J R Hunt, updated by Darrell Enns to work with Gimp 2.6.
Automatically crops out transparent edges. This is particularly useful after performing a rotate or perspective correction on a photo. It can also perform optimizations to find the crop that removes the transparent edges while mainting as much of the original image as possible.

Merge Visible with Layer Mask & Alpha

Merge visible using the active layer transparency to create a mask, visible layers below are discarded.

This can be useful in 3d applications to preserve texture maps that belong in the alpha channel by using the bottom layer's mask to hold the information.

Appears in /Image/Merge Visible with Layer Mask & Alpha of the Image window.

Rays of Light

Creates a shining glow as demonstrated in the tutorial here:
http://www.gimpusers.com/tutorials/rays-of-light-behind-text.html
This script will only operate on the alpha-layer
It assumes that the layer size is the same size as the image size
It will not add color to the rays as in the tutorial
The rays are now created much like an outer glow, rather than being merged with a background as in the tutorial
Tested in v2.4.2 only
