def linear_interpolate(start, stop, seconds, fps=30):
    """
    Given a start and stop vector (2 or 3 element tuple), and a time period

    inc = 1.0 / fps
    step = diff * inc

Comments
After playing around with this a little bit I noticed that there are several things needing improvement. The first is on line 13, which should read:
step = diff * inc / seconds
to properly factor in the desired timeframe. The second is the handling of seconds and stop_second. The latter is actually completely unnecessary and can be replaced with inc.
