I have footsge mistakenly shot in 30 fps for a 24 fps project. How do I make avid not apply the time warp effect, it looks choppy and pretty bad when it does. I've tried importing from a separate 30 fps project and no luck. Avid 5.5

If you put any frame rate footage into the timeline that doesn't match the project settings, you'll get that green dot indicating it's a different frame rate. it won't be a Time Warp unless you promote it. But that is the best way to mix frame rates in Avid...import in a 30fps project, bring the bin into a 23.98 project, and cut.

It will look a little choppy...after all, it wasn't shot with conversion to 24 in mind. It wasn't shot with 2/3 pulldown..it was meant to be 30fps. So it won't EXACTLY match the 24fps stuff. The only way to get really close in that respect is to use a Terranex to convert the footage...or to use After Effects voodoo.
