I had a 3 camera shoot, 2 Canon XHA1s cameras shooting HDV 1080i 24F and a third POV Drift camera shooting 1080i 25
I thought I had converted the Drift footage properly; but it is still 25fps. When I mix the 2 cameras on a 23.98 based timeline, the drift camera stutters a little. If I set up a 25 based timeline, the Drift footage looks great; but the HDV footage stutters.
I have tried multiple test exporting a small portion of the Drift footage; but can't seem to get it matching.
You can change frame Rates in Compressor.. Nattress' plugin for this is better and faster than Compressor.. if it's really mission critical, look for a place near you that has a Terranex Box. These do the best of the best with frame rate changes. Just edit as you have been in a 23.98 sequence, then in the end transfer only the footage you need if you go out to do the conforming.
