Footage shot at 30fps instead of 24fps like the rest of the project... anyway to fix this?

One of my videographers shot at the wrong fps during a shoot on a t3i. After conforming the footage and bringing it into Avid, the 30fps footage is much slower than the rest of the 24fps footage. Is there anyway to fix this inside of Avid?

Thanks!

Bring the 30fps footage into a 60i project. Then go back to your 23.976p project and open the bin from the 60i project. MC will add motion adapters to convert the framerate, while keeping realtime realtime.

Is this your Avid system, or is it a rented one? It sounds like the console command IgnoreQTRate=True was set, which will force footage to play out at the projects frame rate which would make the 30 fps play slow. Normally, what you'd do is open a 29.97 ntsc project and import the footage into that. Then you'd open that bin from your 23.976 project and pull the footage over. When you cut it into the Avid, it will apply a time warp effect to play the footage properly.

EDIT: Job beat me to it! Do what he says.
