    I've inherited a project that was startd with no thought to delivery, and it will be delivered to a broadcaster.  Firstly I am in a PAL region so 25fps is the norm and I am delivering an DNxHD, MXF OP1a, 1080i, 8bit, 25fps, with 8 embedded audio channels.

    This project has many different framerates 23.98, 24, 30, 29.97, but most is in 25fps (70%). This is of course something that happens a lot on shoots and probably a lot more in the current climate.

    The conversion's where done in Adobe Encoder to 25fps, but I am concerned about it not passing tech check.  There are duplicate frames on all the lower to higher frame rate conversions and bluring on movement on the higher to 25. The broadcaster in their supportive information recommends PixelStrings for all converstions, to get the best results. 

    I would love some advice, if anyone has used PixelSrings, also about the best and most cost efficent way to handle this situation.  Also what is the best postpathway for future season of the show. if mixed frame rates continue.
