"3:2 pulldown" (or more correctly 2:3 pulldown) aka. telecine is converting 24fps footage (usually film) to 30 fps video (or 23.976 to 29.97). Pretty much the reverse process of getting 29.97fps DVD sources to 23.976fps to edit with. To put it simply, telecine is converting every 4 original frames to 5 by duplicating and mixing fields, then repeating. 4 x 6 = 24, and 5 x 6 = 30.
And I may as well update my situation. New parts arrived and my computer is up and running. As I suspected, the PCI-E slot on my old computer died, so sticking in a PCI video card got it working again (although video playback is definitely poorer). Transferring my data from my old PC to the new one was relatively painless. I also took the time to upgrade to Magix Movie Edit Pro 15 (not really worth it for the new features, but it is Windows 7 compatible and I got it for $30 during Best Buy's sale). I'm back working on my video, although RightStuf still hasn't sent the final DVDs of the series I'm using. There is a good chance that I won't need the footage on those discs anyways, so it shouldn't be a show-stopper.
