Converting 59.94 footage to 23.976 - Help!

Hi,

I have some video that was captured from a DVCPRO720 tape. It's 59.94 progressive. Unfortunately this is all that was made available to me.

I need to put this in a 23.976 timeline, but when I do I get horrible looking motion. I tried re-rendering it as 29.97 and dropping that into the timeline, but every 3rd frame or so seems to be doubled, and the motion still looks awful.
I'm not trying to turn this into slow motion, just convert it straight across from 60 to 24.

Can anyone help me with the proper way to convert this into a true 23.976 file with proper motion? I have searched high and low for hours unable to find the answer.

Thank you.

Was this footage shot 24p with pulldown added or just straight up 60i?

It was shot at 24p on film and they encoded it to a dvcpro tape at 60p. Frame 1 is repeated 2 times, then frame 2 is repeated 3 times, and so on.

You will need to use CinemaTools to extract the 24p footage stream.

I run PC, is there any alternative software? Something in the Adobe platform?

You can try After Effects (right click->Interpret footage->Guess 3:2 pulldown), but if it still doesn't look right then your only option is Cinema Tools.
