Description:

This script adds two commands which either overlays or combines the background (bottom) layer to the rest of the visible layers.

Combine Background works by placing a copy of the background layer underneath each of the visible layers, then merging the two layers together. This can be useful for adding a background to an animation, or creating "picture-in-picture" effect.

Overlay Background works by placing a copy of the background layer above each of the visible layers, then merging the two layers together. This can be useful for adding static content -- such as text -- to an animation.
