Well, NTSC, technically speaking, is 740x486, 29.97fps. Always. Avid just happens to make a 23.98 NTSC format to allow us to work in a very low proxy workflow for HD footage. Meaning that if DHx36 is still too big, we can utilize the NTSC codecs like 10:1 and 14:1, and maintain our HD frame rate. It's a cheat to allow projects to do that.

SO...I'm wondering if it is because of that. Just guessing, spitballing. Is your master footage HD and you are trying for this proxy workflow, or is your SD footage, somehow, really 23.98? I know several DV formats recorded 23.98, but in a 29.97 stream and you removed pulldown upon ingest.
