mixing 30 fps and 29.97 on a timeline

Chopping together what is mostly Pro Res 422 1920 x 1080 29.97fps footage with a few shots from a FlipCam. The FlipCam is shooting native 1280 x 720 30fps H.264 (mp4) files, and i had been converting them to the same Pro Res 422 flavors as the rest of my shots. My question: does it make any difference if i convert them to 29.97 or just leave them at 30? I've done tests and see no discernible difference.

thanks for helping out a bonehead!

fiddling around makes some things even worse than better. If it's working stick with it. It saves you time nad you might end up with the result you just have.
