I have several projects in a 29.97 sequence that incorporate clips at 23.98. FCP7 adds its shitty pulldown where it dups every 4th frame. My remedy has been to lay all 23.98 content onto a new track,

Thank you for your response. In regards for video editing, which seeks information off the drives almost constantly, it seems I would benefit from the "faster response" of a RAID0 Im actually now look

I think you can use the Canon EOS Plugin under FCP7 to "Log and Transfer" the footage off the cards into ProRes files, then import the resulting ProRes files into Adobe Premiere.
Any kind of program to match audio clips based on spectral analysis or something similar?

Yes, precisely that. Plural Eyes is a good suggestion, I'll give it a shot. Otherwise, if I can't tell the difference by ear, then why would the client Thanks for the tips.
