Process SlowMo before or after Color

Ok, so I've got a sequence that I'm happy with. I want to run it out to color. But I still need to apply the Smooth Cam filter and apply the Optical processing for the slow mo clips in Motion.

For quality's sake, should I do those before I roundtrip it through color? Or does it matter if I keep it all in Proress422?

I recently worked on a spot that had a lot of speed ramping and Color did not play well with the footage when using the "Send To" command from FCP6. (FCS3 may have fixed this issue but I haven't tested it yet.)

The solution was to do all of the Motion ramping stuff first and then render out of FCP as a self-contained Quicktime movie along with an EDL. Then import the Quicktime movie into Color and import the EDL to "notch" the edit points for colour correcting. Then render the final movie out of Color.

This is how we used to do tape to tape in the DaVinci so it is a very logical workflow.

Thanks, Tim. I'm already following that format so I guess it makes sense to do it all then. I guess I just wanted to know if the quality will suffer (the quality of the analyzing) if I apply the motion effects after they get back from color.
