Re: OT: Converting 29.97 to 24p? And the repercussions of doing so?

I'm working on a tv episode made all from stock footage. Most of it is from films whose editing timebase was 23.976. My timeline is also 23.976. The problem is, the film masters contains shots that I know were either shot at 29.97 and either conformed with cinema tools to 23.976 and then sped back up to 125% to play realtime, or just simply dropped in the timeline and exported. This is causing the episode to fail QC due to dropped frames all over the place. I don't have access to a media managed version of the film, so if I were to run the film masters--or perhaps my entire episode--through the Teranex 2d with project settings at ProRes 422 1080p 23.976 for both playback and captures, would this fix my problem? What is the suggested workflow here? Are there any alternative software conversion suggestions, will mpeg streamclip, Episode 6, or some sort of Red Giant software be a solution as well? Thanks for your help.
