Re: [Gimp-developer] Bug found: Unified transform and perspective tool fail silently when layer is hidden.

I raised this subject in the UI mailing list a few days ago. In my
opinion, A should be the solution.

We need to discuss the usefulness of having the original layer during
transforms. In my experience, most of the times it's a hurdle, blocking
the context for the transform.
But I'm aware that in some cases users would need to compare the
transformed layer vs. the original.
I don't think it's a good idea to rule out that situation, but I'm
convinced that it's an exception, and more frequently users want the
original layer hidden.

Is this what you mean by "original layer"? If a layer stack has two layers, A and B, with B as the upper layer, and if a transform/rotate/etc tool is used on B, the "original layer" is layer B *before* the tranform, and the transformed layer is what B would look like if the transform were made using the current settings.

If I understand what you mean by "original layer", I don't need to see the original layer B. What I really do need to see is layer A, meaning I'd like the option to set the opacity of the transformed layer B to 50% so I can compare the transformed layer B to layer A.

Unfortunately right now lowering the opacity of layer B on which the transform is being done doesn't seem to allow to see layer A through the *transformed* layer B.
