No reason to give the backstory - suffice to say half of the film was accidentally shot in 50i and I need it in 25p. What's the cleanest way of doing this? Cinema Tools? I don't have too much overt motion.

Cheers

The cleanest is the Arri Relativity system. FotoKem in Burbank has it. It's expensive, so the best route is to do your editing in 50i, then process the selects only, with handles. Give them an extra second on both ends, as the process does motion interpolation over several frames.

That I cannot afford J.S. I've heard good things about Graham Nattress' Standards Conversion plugin for FCP:

Am i going to lose vertical resolution with this?

There's no way not to lose resolution when converting interlace to progressive. Interlace has less resolution to start with, because it has a lower Nyquist limit. But it won't be all that terrible.
