    Best way to use 29.97i in 24p timeline?
    A problem: I have some 29.97i footage I need to use in a 23.98fps project. To be specific, it's PF24 footage shot with a Canon camera.

    In years past, I'd deinterlace the footage in Cinema Tools before putting it in my timeline. I've now upgraded to Mojave so Cinema Tools is now out of the question. So, what's the best way to use?

    I know of two options: convert it in Compressor or having FCPX do it. Any advice or thoughts on this? Having never done this before with either program, any specs to use or things to care about?

    If you are just looking for software to convert the 29.97i footage, give Handbrake a whirl. It has options to deinterlace and/or detelecine the source, as well as force a specific framerate. It's an exceptionally excellent piece of software, and it's free.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
