Fix strobe effect?

I've transferred my dad's old 8mm film to video using the film projector and camcorder. The problem is the projector runs at 18 fps, and the camcorder is around 30 fps. Consequently, the brightness "strobes" about 2-3 times per second, making it too annoying to watch. Does Hitfilm have any way to eliminate this light flashing, or even out the brightness over time? I've tried the Auto Levels, but it didn't help.

    The auto levels would have been my recommendation. If that didn't help, then I'm not sure what to suggest other than manually keyframing the values to even them out. Which doesn't sound like any fun at all.
    You could see about sending the film to a telecine house to properly convert it for you? That would be the best solution, but not the cheapest.
