Dave...there is 25fps footage in the mix...

You can't do SAME AS SOURCE if you have multiple codecs and frame rates. That only works if you have one frame rate, and one consistent codec. So if you do a VIDEO MIXDOWN first, then you can export same as source. I do this all the time.

But Dave is right...24p to 29.97p will repeat frames...same with 25p to 29.97p. No way to avoid that...no interlaced frames to help blend this out. There are hardware options that do a far better job, like the Alchemist. I have to resort to that quite often. But that would mean sending all your 24 and 25 footage to them, have them convert, and then you bring it back in. 59.94 to 29.97 is easy...just lose every other frame.

SO...internally, in any NLE, 24p to 29.97p will repeat frames. Twixtor WILL help with that...but that means buying that plugin, and using it with After Effects. WHich is good, just adds more time and money to the process.
