I presume you still have the DV tapes. There's a way to do this within FCP. It's time-consuming and you won't like it, but you have to do it.

First, find a capture preset called something like, "NTSC DV 3:2 Pulldown removal." DO NOT use a capture preset with the word "advanced" in it. Got it? Good.

Next, you'll log your shots. You WILL NOT capture an entire tape. Log each take you want to use by marking an in & out point WITHIN THE SHOT. Once a tape is logged, you can do a batch capture. Repeat the procedure for each tape.

Now you have 23.976 fps (aka 23.98) PROGRESSIVE footage, and you may begin cutting your epic. When the time comes for final export, make sure the codec for the timeline is ProRes 422, and not DV. It will look better.

I didn';t give any of the reasons why you have to jump through all these hoops. Sadly, there isn't enough time: I'm off on a shoot now.
