Getting 24p out of the FX1

How do you get the FX1's 29.97 footage converted to 24p besides using magic bullet which doesen't really work well and slowing down the footage by 25%. I know you can always export a 29.97 sequence to 24 fps but it's stuttery and ugly looking... I know that there are some out there who are effectively/professionaly converting FX1 footage to 24 fps/24 p without getting it to look stuttery/juddery and like bad video... So what are the methods? How is it done? How can you get 24p/24 fps cleanly/perfectly looking like real cinema out of the FX1?

Boyd - Is the trial version of DVfilm Maker fully functional, or is it crippled in some way?

I believe it's watermarked .The same with nattress. I haven't fully understood the vegas thing mainly because I'm using fcp but also it appears that vegas has a good 24p conversion built into the program.There's a mountain of threads on these subjects and also dvfilm and nattress can be trialed for free so you can see for yourself if you like the results. I , myself , have used nattress' filters for a while and can attest they work great . Also I don't understand why MB , if you're using the full plugin inside AE, slows down the footage ? I hear the render times are gigantic but it should make usable 24p footage. Kurth

I have the full version, although haven't tried it yet with HDV. But the last time I tried the trial, it was fully functional but superimposed a DVFilm logo on the footage.

Download the demo and give it a try. It's a tiny little standalone program with both Mac and PC versions.
