Actually, no compressor program will get you back there. But it isn't as hard as you think. If the cadence is like you say (A B C D D A B C D D) and it is consistent throughout, here's what I have done in the past to rectify:

  • Open FCP
  • Choose 29.97 easy setup
  • Create new project
  • Create new sequence
  • Import 29.97 (2:2:2:4) file
  • Add file to sequence
  • Remove every fifth frame (for this, I use a genius little macro tool called MadRuby which allows you to record a few keystrokes and then play them back on repeat until done. So you can record "right,right,right,right,i,o,shift-delete" which is a key sequence that will remove every fifth frame. Then you can set MadRuby to playback with repeat x number of times and it will edit out the duplicate frames for you.)
  • Export newly edited sequence as QuickTime Movie, Current Settings, Self-Contained
  • Open this QT in Cinema Tools
  • Choose Conform…
  • Conform the QT to 23.98 fps

Now you have the original 23.98p file without any loss in quality or duplicated frames.
