24P editing protocols question.

My husband, who hasn't gotten around to registering yet, wanted me to ask the following question:

I am getting ready to shoot a digital film in the so-called 3-2-2-3 pulldown system featured in the newer Canons. What FCP protocols are required for properly processing such footage? I"m not even sure that FCP even has such a system in place. But if they do, I need to know:

A. which version(s) are suitable for this work, and
B. what the settings would be.

The idea would be to take the final edit directly over to a transfer house which could render it as a 24 fps celluloid strip.

I'm a professional editor and have been working on FCP for years but I've never worked with anything shot in the 3-2-2-3 mode and have specific concerns as to how to edit it for transfer to film (true 24fps). I can't afford to make any mistakes on this.

Help would be profoundly appreciated on this one.

New Canon camera..the HDV one? It's 24f format is not supported by FCP at this time. Soon, but not yet. Look at the Apple Dev conference...maybe then...maybe.
