Hi guys,

Thanks for your suggestions. I'm sorry I didn't post back sooner. I had to go out of town.

Initially, a friend suggested that I create a 29.97 sequence, copy the clips from the 23.98 sequence and paste them into the 29.97 sequence. I thought this worked, but it messed up all of my variable speed clips. (I noticed that the slow motion spots contained the wrong b-roll. It was very strange.)

I tried several things based on your suggestions, but in the end, I created a 29.97 FPS sequence and re-cut the sequence. I took the old one, opened each clip in the viewer and placed them individually in the new timeline, using the in and out points from the 23.98 FPS EDL. For the things where I applied a motion effect (slow motion) I had to eyeball the original clip and re-do the slow motion.

This was definitely a learning experience! ;-) Thanks for your help!
