Best Capture Settings for H1:s 25f (pal)

I have captured my latest project shhot in 25f in the setting "HDV" instead of "Apple intermediate codec" which use mostly, by mistake. It looks quite nice actually, but do you think it will look even better in "Apple intermediate codec" or something else?

Just how much video do you have to capture, Jonas? How big is the project?

I just did the same thing (4 hours interlaced footage) and wonder if the intermediate codec is more processor efficient?

Chris; I have captured four to five hours, but it's not so hard to do it again (batch captures) as I have not started the real editing yet. So what do you think? Of course the best thing is to do tests and compare, but maybe someone here have any (strong) opinion. I've heard about photojpg aswell @ 75% quality!

The story is a "film noir pastich" and therefore quite dark. All filmed in 25f and I use Nattress "bleach bypass" so it is a great filmic look! But can it look even greater..? I'm happy for any input!
