This is not inverse telecine, it's just fps-smoothing of "soft
telecined" material, which is really 24fps video stored as 29.97 fps
using silly mpeg2 flags. The message has been updated in CVS to be
less misleading.

Does mencoder detect this and switch once at startup, or switch back
and forth many times throughout the movie? If it's the latter, you
have a mix of soft telecine and hard telecine, and you MUST use one of
the following filter chains to correct it:

-vf softpulldown,ivtc=1
-vf pullup
-vf filmdint
