How do I convert my 24pA film to 30? Avid

I'm working on a 30min. short film for which I intend on ultimately putting on DVD for viewing. I decided to shoot it in 24p Advanced (2:3:3:2 pulldown) instead of 24p (2:3 pulldown), knowing full well that it would probably be more challenging to get it to look right at 30fps. The reason was, though, that we're actually doing some animation onto the film and other special effects where if the film would've had the "24fps look" in the technically 30fps (2:3 pulldown), then the animation and effects would have a "30fps look" on top of the "24fps look" footage - very distracting.

Anyways, we're editing in an Avid Adrenaline and we'll be doing our cgi in After Effects. Any suggestions as to the best way of converting the 24fps to 30fps so it can be played off a DVD correctly?

Thanks a ton!!

Just leave it all as true 24P. Do your AE animations at 23.976 and render as 24P. Then create a a 24P DVD. All commercial DVD players will add 3:2 pull up to make it NTSC on output automatically. They will also letterbox your anamorphic 16:9 video as well if required.

Good luck.

Once you've removed pulldown and have gone into a 24p environment, going back to 60i (29.97) is no more challenging with advanced pulldown that it is with standard pulldown. Once pulldown is removed, it's 24p all the same and you have the same options either way.

What Paul said. There's no need to go back to 30fps in order to make a DVD.
