Oh, wow. The command had completed and was waiting for something.

I aborted out of the command run and the target was complete and plays fine. 'interleave' works but 
doesn't close on completion.

Now I can try a run with filters to smooth the combed frames (which are 2, 7, 12, 17, etc.). Stay 
tuned to this channel...
