From reading your description, it sounds like you don't like what the original source looks like (29.97i). You deinterlaced it for the DVD release, and you like this look. Now you're going back to the original interlaced source you hate and trying to encode it to Blu-ray. Why not use the source you used for the DVD? If you like that deinterlaced 29.97 look, just use those files for the Blu-ray. Blu-ray can take 720x480, 29.97i. So you should be able to feed your authoring software your files. If it balks and the complaint is that they are progressive, I would just bring them into Compressor, tell it you want 29.97i, and let it crunch. Compressor will take your frames and duplicate them into fields, preserving your deinterlaced look while interlacing the files. Those will work for your Blu-ray.

If you feel the need to up-res the source files (doesn't really make sense since there's no more resolution to be had), you can use Compressor in the same way, just change the output size to 1080.
