    native HDV versus Cineform editing - noticeable quality losses?

      Hi folks.

      Is it me or Premiere CS3 feels more happy editing native HDV versus Cineform? With HDV it just renders A LOT faster and the program seems to run better (less stutter). The only downside is that it takes forever to load the project (versus Cineform) and the mastering output choices are smaller.

      I really like Cineform, but in my computer it just asks too much patience(Win XP SP3 + P4 775 3.06 + 1024 RAM).

      Editing in HDV, the quality is really that sacrified???? My editing routine consists of dissolves, magic bullet looks and classic effects.

      What is your opinion? Thank you guys :)
