The fade filter can't do that, as it takes one input video and
produces one output video. A "fade from one video to another video"
would require two input videos and one output video (VV->V in ffmpeg
-filters). The only VV->V filter is the "overlay" filter. I wonder if
you could create an intermediate video using the fade filter to fade
to/from completely transparent, and then use that intermediate video
and the second video as input to the overlay filter and if it would
combine everything correctly... I've never tried it, so I can't say.
It would be interesting to know though.
