I have 1080p23.976 footage that is stored in-camera by wrapping the 24p footage into a 60i wrapper, by introducing pulldown in-camera. To edit it, I need to remove the pulldown from the 1080i59.94 footage, with the end result being 23.976 fps progressive. Can After Effects do this? Interpret footage, maybe? Also, I only have CS4.

Since you run AE 9, the codec of the footage could be a stumbling block as well. If it's not DVCPro HD, you'll probably have trouble with long-gop codecs used in HDV, XDCam and others. I recommend converting the footage to a lossless or uncompressed codec prior to pulldown removal.
