15 FPS to Mpeg2

Just a silly question. I have tons of 15 FPS video clips from a Canon A-70 digital still camera. When I converted it to DVD in several programs, the video of course is jerky. It gives it a strange motion effect. I know that the Mpeg2 conversion is at 29.97 FPS. What program would be the best for converting the original 15 FPS 640x480 video to 29.97 FPS 720x480 before it is encoded to the final DVD project? How will the sound match up if that is at all possible? I have Vegas, Canopus, Premiere 1.5 Pro, virtual dub, but am limited for time to experiment. Any quick advice?

I would just open a new project in vegas or premiere, set it to default 29.976fps NTSC and then drop in your file. You will see then that every frame should be taking two frames. YOu can then render to mpeg2 compliant video for DVD authoring.

There are special programs dedicate to up or downsampling
framerates. I believe twixtor is one of the better ones. I doubt
Premiere's algorithms will be a match for those kind of programs.

The only thing you basically can do is experiment. So if you have
limited time it will take longer (no hurry, right?). My guess would
be that the best look will come from the products you have (in order):

1. virtualdub (with some plugins perhaps)

2. procoder

3. vegas

4. premiere

I could be wrong... of course

I rendered a clip in Vegas. It had that washy look during motion. I'll try all of the rest with the same sample clip and output them to a dvd and play on a TV to see the results of each one.
