I am trying to do a 23.98 - PAL conversion in the latest trial release of SOM 2013.
My method has always been to create a PAL colour source and insert that into a new sequence. That works fine and my sequence is set up as PAL.
When I insert my 23.98 material into the sequence, I still get the warning (inserting 23.98 into a 25 sequence) but there doesn't appear to be a Timewarp applied to the footage. When I render / playback the material looks smooth but jumps a few frames every 2-3 seconds.
I'm trying to reproduce this and I can't. Is this in Pre-Release 1 or 2? Do this as a test. First duplicate the video in the media library, this way you have a clean untouched file and then right click on the new duplicated video file and choose Open as Sequence. Then check the format of the new sequence. Does that work correctly?
