Old footage: Any advantage on reconverting now?

I have some beautiful Canon HL H1 footage captured and converted using Prospect HD a little over a year ago. Until now it's been unedited. Now that I have to edit it... Would I get any visual benefit capturing and converting again (using Prospect 2K latest version)?.

Thank you


Ruben

If you use the 10-bit option with Prospect HD (now a standard mode) then you there is no benefit to converting again. The old files are fine.
