State of the 24p Software Solutions?

I've been wondering if there been many/any significant upgrades in the past year or so to the software solutions to achieve 24p?

And if so, how do they compare to native 24p (approximately)?

Thanks y'all!

Well, since nobody else spoke up...

I can't speak for improvement over time, but I have achieved good results using Sony Vegas 7. Before I got my V1U's, I shot HDV with Sony HDR HC1 and HC3 camcorders. I captured into Vegas, and almost by accident discovered that rendering to 24p just "looked" better. Ignorance is bliss!

Not until I actually started trying to achieve that film look did I really understand what I was doing. Rendering from 1080-60i HDV to 24p DV takes a LOOONG time. But looks great. Sony codecs for MPEG-2 must be really good.

Since purchasing my V1Us, I have been shooting in 24p. Not only does it look awesome as 1080-24p HDV, it renders to 24p DV much faster. And the people who watch the 24p DVDs think it's HD. It looks that good!
