Converting Canon C300 footage shot at 30fps, 48fps, and 60fps to play at 23.98fps in Final Cut 7

We shot a lot of slow motion at 30, 48, and 60fps with the intention of having the option of regular speed (23.98) or slow motion for each of the shots.

The MXF files were converted to Pro-Res using log and transfer in Final Cut 7 with the Canon Plug-In. There are no options in log and transfer to adjust the speed, so I used the change speed function within Final Cut to convert the slow motion clips to play back at normal speed and to sync the sound.

However, there is a distinct motion blur with the speed change. With the frame blending option it almost looks dream-like, without it the dropped frames are really noticeable, especially the stuff shot at 30fps. Is there a better way to do this that will look right?

Just curious. Why are you transcoding? Couldn't you just use it native? I've done that before. It seemed to work. Maybe that would help with the speed issue?
