xargs problem...


Hi!
I want to insert a picture into a group of pictures (I memorized their names in a text file) resulting a new group of picture (which I also memorized their name in another text file), but I have a problem doing that.
I want to write something like that:

$> cat file1 | cat file2 | xargs composite -blend 30 text.jpg line_file1 line_file2

where
file1 is:
frame1.jpg
frame2.jpg
frame3.jpg
....

and file2 is:
new_frame1.jpg
new_frame2.jpg
new_frame3.jpg
...

Can anyone help me?
Thanks in advance!

Maybe:
Code:
$ paste file1 file2 | xargs -L 1 composite -blend 30 text.jpg
