Just as the subject says, I've got a 23.98 composition that I've carefully timed out. I'd like to create a 60i mov file in the end, which means I need proper 2:3 pulldown applied. Is there any way to get pulldown when you put a 23.98 comp into a 29.97 comp, or do I just render the 23.98 comp?

Thanks, y'all!

60i, you'd need to render the 23.976 comp, setting the render settings to field render and selecting a pulldown cadence.

if your comp is 23.98, make sure to set it to 23.976 fps before rendering, 23.98fps is not an accurate frame rate it's just a shorthand name (kind of like a 2-by-4 is not actually 2 inches by 4 inches).

Haha, yeah I was actually using 23.98 as shorthand! My comp and settings are all 23.976

Thanks for the help!

If there isn't any video footage in that 23.976 comp, you could nest it in the 29.97 comp. The timings won't change.

If there IS video footage in it, you'll have to render & reimport as Kevin says. Add the comp to the render queue, open the render settings, hit the add pulldown switch, and pick one of the five patterns.
