Autopaint workflow

Often times clone paint strokes track for a range of frames when using auto paint. Then the clone source area may have changed so that the patch doesn’t work anymore. Then a new clone patch needs to be created in place of the previous one. So- ideally I would fade out the previous clone patch and fade in the new clone patch in a seamless fashion - but that doesn’t seem to be possible.
What is the best method to crossfade different paint strokes?

The only way I can think of to do what you are asking would be to have two Paint nodes that you connect into a Composite > Mix node and then do the dissolve with it.
