May have to just convert all 23.98 footage up to 59.94!! Man!

So I think I've got it all pretty much figured out here and I don't think it's going to be easy at all! I wanted to see if I could just convert the few shots I have at 59.94 down to 23.98...but I tried doing this and it of course looks terrible! Very jittery. So basically, I'm going to somehow have to convert 95% of this feature film (86 minutes) up to 59.94?! My God...just because the DP wasn't paying attention and shot the other 5% at the higher frame rate instead of 23.98. So my only option is to do all of this manually? since I've already edited the entire film...That is a TON of work!! I did a 60 frame per second export of it using quicktime conversion and it looks pretty good..a little extra stroby but I think definitely watchable...is that my ONLY choice then? Unless I want to spend WAY more time just to convert everything??

Also, I didn't just jump in and start editing without knowing what was going on...I specifically told both our DP's we were shooting at 24fps (which of course they did most of the time)...wow

Hey Shane, I have always intended delivering at 24fps (that's what my editing time base is set at, as 23.98)...which is what I've been using for the post work as well..ADR etc. with of course my codec being DVCPro HD 720p60. I tested 3 different shots last night, converting 59.94 to 24fps BTW...one looked great, one other looked pretty good (passable probably), but the third looked terrible..was a pan up shot of a moving car with lots of daylight...literally looked like a strobe light! If I could just get the conversion better! And I'm supposed to be sending a mov file for a conform (I made some additional cuts recently, which is now THE FINAL version of the film) to the post studio...and I don't know how much it will affect the audio sync if I were to now export it in QuickTime conversion at a higher frame rate (59.94) since it seems to look better that way...yes there is some slight ghosting with the 23.98 footage having to duplicate frames but it looks better overall I think....the whole point of shooting at 24fps is to have it look more like film, which I much prefer..so obviously I really wouldn't want to convert all my 23.98 stuff up to 59.94 because then I would lose that

By delivery I mean tape...HDCAM, HDCAM SR, DVCPRO HD...or digital file, or DVD/BluRay.

Well definitely BluRay and DVD...but I also want to enter into as many film festivals as I can...not sure what they require exactly, I do need to look into that...you might know better than me...may need to uprez to true 1080 too? So I would like it to be seen in theaters as well as BluRay/DVD
