just for information (as Rich said) make an decoding/encoding with  
framerate " -re" (instead of "-r pal" or -r ntsc" or "-r 25" or "-r  
30000:1001", ...)
the "-re" parameter for framerate will just decode/encode your input  
whitout forcing framerate (read your input at its own framerate and  
write it "the same")
You'll will see (even if your input was a ntsc-film with pulldown)  
that your output will be 24000:1001 too

PS: I asked once in the list about pulldown (or RepeatFirstField or  
telecine ...) and ffmpeg but I ddin't have answer.
There's no way yet to add pulldown flag during the encoding directly  
with ffmpeg?
(I use the opensource "pulldown" to add this flag after encoding,  
this tool works great but it damage the internal timecode of the  
stream, not dramatic just "ugly".)
