Interpet Footage should work fine for the 24 fps stuff. Might also work fine for the 25 fps, though you could see a very slight slow down in playback. The 30 fps stuff will probably show a very noticeable 'slow motion' effect.
thanks for the info thats great ! the footage is just vision and wont matter if its slower which is good, i was concerned about any NTSC / PAL issues with the 25p stuff - but would i be correct in saying that as these files are raw and from the Epic / Scarlet that they are not either NTSC or PAL until they are outputted that way in post? Unlike say a a Canon 5D where you assign either NTSC or PAL within the camera?

That would not be correct.
At resolutions higher than standard definition, the distinguishing factor for "ATSC/PAL" is the frame rate, with the former using 24, 30 and 60 and the latter using 25 and 50. That's it's RAW has no bearing.
so if i intepret in Premier the 25p .r3d files to 24p (23.976) wouid that be converting PAL to NTSC - or would i need to hardware convert with a Terenex or something similar to get a true conversion?
The Interpret method would just be slowing them down. But going from 25 to 24, it's not likely to be very noticeable. It's the 30 fps clips that will be noticeably slowed.
