Personally, I don't like doing this, because I'm working from 23.976 fps HuffYUV AVI files, and converting the framerate to 29.97 (as DV requires) through a lossy process (DV, while very good, still isn't lossless) causes me a number of ugly footage quality problems (mostly frame blending, which I despise). But I do my ripping and footage preparation on my Windows PC and edit on the Mac in FCP, so my workflow may not work for you.
