This may be a simple question.
I have a scene composed of a few layers. I want some of the layers to contain sprites which are batched.
I guess I can have those layers contain a sprite batch node, which then contains sprites.
But then I wonder, do I need the layer at all? Maybe for those layers, instead of layer~~>batch~~>sprites I could just have batch->sprites.
In that case, can the batch node serve as the layer node? If not, what is the layer node giving me over and above the batch node?
