Re: interlacing two videos together?

Slowing your video down to 60fps creates a frame for each field. You can then combine the two streams by creating stream 'A' with frame 1 at 100% opacity, frame two at 0% opacity (you can do this with transfer modes too) and stream 'B' with frame 1 at 0% opacity and frame 2 at 100% opacity.

The trick is in creating a repeating on/off opacity for each stream and every frame. That's why I mentioned transfer modes. You should be able to create a two frame animation loop (frame 1 black, frame 2 white) that loops hundreds of times and use this loop as a transfer mode source, making every other frame of your video transparent.

After you have your streams built, drop into a 30fps project and render out as interlaced.

I have no idea what this will look like, but I'll probably try it out myself at some point.

I was hoping to pick the collective brain and perhaps be referred to a software tool.  I'm interested in combining the upper field of one digital video with the lower field of another.  Any ideas on how to do this?  Any existing tools out there?
