Glitch creating WMV-HD from Cineform files

I've been working on how best to encode 1080i HD-WMV files from Sony HC1 footage using PPro2, and came across the following.

When I pull a Cineform .m2t file into an Adobe HDV project, and then export to the Adobe Media Encoder, the resulting wmv file looks normal.

But when I pull the equivalent Cineform CFHD-codec clip into a Cineform AspectHD project, and then export to the AME using the exact same profile as before, the resulting wmv file is has reduced contrast and saturation - in particular the blacks aren't fully black.

Has anyone else encountered this? Maybe a colorspace issue?

How are other people going from Cineform to interlaced HD-WMV?

Not a glitch. Turn "Video Systems RGB" off for your WMV export as the AME can't support the higher dynamic range RGB. This option is in the Playback Settings panel.
