For improved encoding with material that originated on 24fps film, we have
included a Telecine option for encoding.  It's located in the Advanced settings
of the Preset drawer.  This setting will allow for much better encode quality
when using 24fps film original content.

The main concern with using the Telecine option is with material that has both
24fps film content and 30fps video content.  Almost all material on video tape
has both film and video content included, even though it may look like only a
film based content.  Sometimes title information is re-edited on video copies
and this changes the framerate back and forth from 24 to 30 back to 24fps. 

Everytime a framerate changes, a field repeat has a chance to occur.  Because
of this, it is advisable to use the Auto setting in the Telecine option.  If a
framerate change occurs during a still image, then a field repeat may not be

Use either the 'Auto' setting or the 'Auto-Repeat 1st' setting for encoding film
based 24fps material.  Analyze the final encoded stream to make sure the repeat
fields do not pose a problem with viewability, especially during title sequences
where most framerate changes could occur.
