My practice is to use the dnxhr codec which doesn't conform the frame rate to the project frame rate;
Make a project at the size and frame rate you wish to deliver,
Ama link to the footage transcode to dnxhr, edit into the timeline, avid will automatically conform your footage to the timeline frame rate , (you will see a little icon on the clips to indicate a speed change).
if you want to manipulate frame rates, use the motion fx editor to changet the frame rate of your clip in the timeline.
The problem with this workflow, is that dnxhr only supports frame rates up to 50 or 60 fps!
So for clips of higher frame rates , I slow them down to 50 or 60 fps in a program editready (mac, but I'm sure there would be a pc equivalent). Then Ama link them and transcode as before.
