I do TV delivery occasionally and I use pulldown to turn my 2398 clips into 5994i (so does everybody else, AFAIK). I know of the method to use the Tools page to add pulldown to clips/sequences but I must work with mixed stuff in the timeline. In order to do pulldown properly for scaling, this is my workflow:
[CFX: Resize - Pulldown] - CC
This is not the most intuitive workflow. If there were a pulldown Timeline FX I could enable after the Resize I would not have to go into CFX just for the sizing conform.
Is there something I'm missing about Smoke that can make this workflow smoother? Could I make the Resize attribs Smoke adds when I do the XML import carry over better? Can Timewarp apply pulldown using the interlacing options?
