Maintains compatibility while increasing encoding efficiency (since redundant fields/frames are not encoded).
Exactly, and that's exactly what I want when taking my 1080 24p (23.98p) project to SD DVD. And that's exactly what I get when I use "pulldown.exe" on my 24p mpeg2 file.

However, what I am wanting to know is if Edius's (V 6.06) option to add the 2:3 pulldown is THIS SAME METHOD (i.e. just repeat flags) or not? If it is, I can skip the "pulldown.exe" conversion step altogether.
