Hey, guys. I'm sorry if this has been discussed to death, but after all the searching I've done, I can't find a straight answer:
When I shoot in 24p, it mounts the images on a 60i file. For pulldown, it shows one frame twice, and the next 3 times. The picture quality is wonderful, especially when I play it on my PS3. But when it comes time to edit, I'd prefer to work in a 24p timeline. Pardon me if this is harsh, but Sony Vegas 8 does an atrocious job of doing 2:3 inverse telecine. Sometimes I can see artifacts from 3 different frames in one individual frame. Is there any way on Windows that I can do a decent 2:3 inverse telecine? Keep in mind, it's the same frames twice, then three times. The frames aren't made up of interlaced bits of other frames.
Much appreciated, whoever can give me a definitive answer
you're right.. It was a recommendation to avoid dealing with 24p as I didn't see the benefit with it, especially if posting on the internet...
but I didn't know that about BluRay and 24p...learned something new.

Vegas removes pulldown for DV only, and also for Sony's type of HDV called 24A.

Cineform, Procoder, TMGEnc. If you want it for free try FFMpeg Batch Intermediate Creator.

Not true. You can put 30PsF (a.k.a. 2:2 pulldown) into 1080i30 project just the same way the camcorder records it. All decent modern Blu-ray players can process 2:2 pulldown. Or you can downres it to 720p and put into 720p60 with 2:2 frame repeat.
