Stop calling Linear Dodge "Add" in brackets and give Photoshop a true After Effects-style Add effect... one that's affected by not only luminance, but opacity as well.

Linear Dodge is Add. It is literally result = top layer + bottom layer.

We gave it a different name originally because at that time, After Effects had an "Add" with bugs in it's math.
