Yeah it's a big problem especially when we get stuff like old stock
footage from Digibeta that needs to go into a 24 fps project. It's
even more of a problem when the 3:2 cadence breaks... the horror!

I believe some cameras still shoot 24 fps, but wrapped in a 60i
stream. In those cases, we have no choice but to reverse telecine as
you mentioned.

I'm not sure if a simple reverse 3:2 filter is in FFmpeg, but it would
be nice at least for "clean" 3:2'd material.

Of course, you guys in PAL countries never have to deal with this. I'm jealous.
