i have a 24 fps sequence that have to be composited as old film shot at 16 fps (variable manual speed - old camera) but played at 24. everything should look a bit faster but not by speeding up but rather by doubling some frames here and there. somehow timeX node sucks when it comes to expressions.
is there any method to bypass this issue (timeX not working properly)

By using the file in node you can import the image sequence with an expression that will only bring in every other frame to get the 16fps that you are looking for. This will bypass the timex node and when you do your composite everything will be frame accurate at 16fps. You can do the same thing with a file-out node. Render out a 16fps image sequence then bring it back with a file-in node. Set the time line to 24fps and then render out a 24fps sequence.
The problem here is when you time-stretch to fit the 24fps the software is going to add frames which will kill your effect. You don't need to time-stretch just make sure your 16fps moments are long enough with-in the 24fps sequence. If there not then make sure your 16fps moments are 4/6'ths longer then what is needed. This will give you some room to fit your true 16fps moments in the 24fps timeline with-out time stretching.
