Cinefrom on underwater footage

Hi all.
I have been messing around with Cineform and Premiere Pro. With land shots some say zooming in still gives still nice quality. Well after applying that to my underwater footage, I have to say even the slightest zoom in when editing in HDV brings the quality down. You can really see it. Brings the particles out more.

Other things I have found when using it.
Cineforms colour correction works fantastic on underwater material.
The med encoded footage looks stunning, however its is even better using the max quality.
On a 3 GIG system, sending the material to a 250 gig sata drive, 30 mins takes about 40 to finish encoding to the AVI file. I can live with that for real time editing.
Normal DVD's made from HDV material is better than down converting and editing in DV then to a normal DVD.
Not a single drop out so far.
It seems to still have a couple bugs though, but it is the best way to edit HDV without having to buy some huge $$$$$ setup.

I have twin 17 inch LG Flatrons (8ms) and the footage on the 1280/ 1024 screen its stunning.
Go here for some big wmv underwater clips.

Sorry Mac users, I have tried making nice quicktime files, even H.264 but there is no way I can get the files the same quality and size as Windows Media 9 can.

Zooming has been upgraded in Aspect HD 3.2, so if you haven't downloaded that please do. In my own project for the 48 hour film competition we zoomed in on much of the material to improve the framing -- looked great.
