I think either Lagarith or UT are better options. Both are free of charge, which Cineform isn't, and both are lossless, which DNxHD isn't.
And, both play nice with PP.
Thanks for the reply. I'm currently testing Cineform, which is actaully free now if you don't need 4:4:4 or anything larger than 1920x1080. So far it's giving me better results and smaller file sizes than DNxHD. I'm very familiar with Lagarith and use it for non real-time applications but have found it a tad sluggish in the timeline for editing. UT looks very interesting. I'll give that one a look.
Yeah, UT is better at HD editing than Lags, especially when using a YUV mode.
I'd recommend you just try them all out and decide for yourself. Because I've noticed tons of people are split on this. I've tried them all quite frequnetly except for UT, and all of them had certain "issues" that made me somewhat angry. But I have to say that the pro's outweight the cons with all of them IMHO. I actually like them all for different reasons.
