Cinema Tools will remove the pulldown which is there to bring the 24fps material up to 30.
You need to tell it which frame is which in the sequence, but that's not too tough - just read the manual.
Maybe this will help lead you in the right direction.
Using a Final Cut Pro System for 24p Offline and Online Editing
Using the same Final Cut Pro system for both offline and online editing makes the process as simple and error-free as possible. The workflow when using the same system for both purposes is outlined below.
Adding and Removing Pull-Down in 24p Clips
I'm going to recommend against using Cinema Tools actually....
Inside of Compressor you can create a preset that will use Frame Controls and "Remove Telecine" and transcode the files into the codec of your choice. In my case I use ProRes 422 LT (I have FCS 3). I created a droplet with this preset which allows me to simply drag and drop the files onto the droplet and remove the extra frames.
The reason I recommend this over Cinema Tools is that it (1) automatically detects what the pulldown pattern is (2) the ability to create a droplet which is easier that using Cinema Tool's batch feature.
