At some point you will have to decide if you need support for using
HandBrake or support for using FFmpeg.
To the best of my knowledge, you will not get much support for
using FFmpeg on HandBrake's forum and bugtracker and I can
assure you that no HandBrake support is given here.

Note that hevc does not support interlaced encoding, FFmpeg
and libx264 do.

And reading your mail, I suspect that my original fear (that you
don't know the difference between soft-telecine and hard-telecine)
could be true.
Allow me to repeat that if the input is "24p that is soft-telecined to
30i" (which absolutely makes sense for some DVDs), this means
it is 24p to FFmpeg (because soft-telecine is not supported by
FFmpeg and soft-telecine is something that happens in the
decoder / player).

As far as I am concerned, you can get support here it if you try
to convert your input with ffmpeg, in this case please provide
the command line you tested together with the complete, uncut
console output.

Sorry, Carl Eugen

PS: I am not claiming that FFmpeg is better for your use-case
than HandBrake, I don't know.
