Free Mac utilities for denoise, deinterlace, standards conversion

I didn't know that when you export NTSC Quicktime file to PAL in Final Cut Pro it adds one black frame every 10 or so seconds on your file (not so with Compressor I suppose). That spurred Flippant News to note some possibly handy applications from Jan E. Schotsman, including:

1) Deinterlancer, which deinterlances movies, changes field dominance/order, converts PAL to NTSC or Custom, and more; and 2) Video Cleaner, which removes noise, logos, and cross-luma.
