How to convert 23.98 fps to 29.97 fps that look natural ?

We will shoot with the Red camera a video clip and we cannot shoot 29.97 fps in 4K since we need the Drive and we only got the compact flash that only allow 23.98 or 24 fps.

We decide to shoot 4K (not 29,97 3K) in 23.98 fps and in post add the pulldown to reach the 29.97 fps. We did somes tests on FCP and we see cleary the duplicate frame and its not natural.

What do people do in telecine when they shoot a video clip in 16mm, 24 fps, and they convert it to NTSC 29.97 ? Its look so natural, i dont understand that i cannot do the same with my Red footages convert to ProRes for exemple.

Anyone have a secret to do the smooth conversion from 23.98 to 29.97 fps in post ?

thanks millions times !

Edit @ 23.98 and add pulldown at the very end either during or right before output. There's a multitude of ways to add pulldown. What's your final deliverable?

FCP does not add 3:2 pulldown though! Well, it will on DV over firewire, but you're not in DV are you? If you put 24p on a 29.97fps timeline, FCP just dupes frames. FCP isn't always clever when it comes to different fps footage.

However, if you have a 24p timeline and play out over a Kona card, say, that will add pulldown if you ask it nicely.

Or You can grab on of my plugins that will add 3:2 as a render process. (G Film Converter in the Standards Conversion pack).
