    As a filmmaker I’d be so glad if someone could help me understand why a still photo, or one frame of digital video, when “stretched out” (by mulitiplication) on a timeline never looks like live video (even when the subject is a totally motionless still life). Is there really no way to make a still photo into a convincing video clip? To make the pixels dance?

    It would obviously be a tremendous help for an editor to be able to use a still photo as an establishing shot, or to lengthen a precious fragment of a close-up ruined by blinks, for example. Impossible?

    Are you watching it in Interlace or Progressive?

    I’m only referring to my past experience. I always used progressive. I’d be so happy if they came up with a way to do this now. Thanks.
