No, you're just omitting -vf harddup. -ofps definitely does what you
want here. However, for minor speed changes, using -speed might be
better than duplicating frames (duplication makes for choppy video).
Try something like -speed 25025/24000 to go from NTSC FILM (24000/1001
fps) to PAL, and of course you can make similar conversions for
others. Be aware tho that changing framerate more than slightly with
-speed will make things look and sound very weird. :)
