TECH - Cinema Tools R.I.P.
Just found out Lion and Mountain Lion don't support Cinema Tools anymore. This is a bummer since I've been using it to convert 60fps footage to 24fps. Some have had luck with a ProApps update, but not me (I'm still on FCS 2).
Found THIS WORKAROUND using compressor that might be helpful for anyone else who runs into this problem. Good news is it removes a step from my usual process of using cinema tools to convert frame rate and using mpeg streamclip to transcode. Downside is that it's supposedly slower.
Not sure what to do if I have to deinterlace any old footage again...
