I'm happy to see the transparent filter (though it doesn't work properly - I sent an email).

Do you have any plans to add support for layers?

Some Core Image filters may not work on some versions of Mac OS.
Transparency does not work on 10.4.4.

Please update your system to the latest version.

See similar problem in: OpenGL Issues

We do not plan to add layers in the nearest future.

I AM running the latest version. I have not tried changing my OpenGL preferences yet, but if this is required, then perhaps you should make it more obvious, or change the default.

If that doesn't fix my problem, then it seems your filter still needs some work...

Edit: Turning on OpenGL acceleration fixed the problem, and sped up the software considerably. I think you need to change the default configuration!
