Nothing is better than 2:3:2:3 as far as pulldown is concerned. That's what the DVX100 records in when you just pick regular 24p. Advanced (24pa) is more stuttery. And of course 2:2:2:4 is the worst. Only use that mode to edit with if your computer is too slow to insert the proper 2:3:2:3 pulldown.

In your case, I think I'd recommend just shooting everything in regular (not advanced) 24p and editing on a 29.97 fps timeline. It will work fine, and you'll still have that 24 frames per second look, and it won't require massive amounts of CPU to play back properly.

well thats what I'm doing next time. Well if the editing will be done on my PC then I will shoot 24pa. I'm sorry but I've had a much easier time dealing with 24pa in Vegas. Part of that is due to the fact that my computer is faster.
