HDV workflow

I have a simple Q. I've been wondering which one of these workflow is better (I shoot with a fx1 at 60i) or are they the same?

workflow1:
1- capture all footage with hdlink into cineform codec
2- edit in premiere pro
3- add simple effects in premiere pro
4- import some footage in after effect and do advanced effect there
5- make color corection
6- export movie
7- deinterlace footage in after effect with magic bullet

-or-

workflow2:

1- capture all footage with hdlink into cineform codec
2- deinterlace all footage in after effect with magic bullet
3- edit in premiere pro
4- add simple effects in premiere pro
5- import some footage in after effect and do advanced effect there
6- make color correction
7- export movie

so? Which one is better? 1 or 2? and why? or is there no difference if you interlace in the end?

thanks again guys :)

I would use workflow nr. 1. Why? Because I tend to do slowmotion shots and interlaced material has 50 fps (pal) compared to the 25 when deinterlaced. I can use those "extra" frames to create better slowmotions.

I believe the first workflow is what the manual for Magic Bullet encourages... And they really insist in recompressing as little as possible...

What type of effects are you doing in premiere pro before importing to AE for color corection?

the basic fades and scene transition, mostly. but also some time shifting stuff like slo motion and change everything into 24 fps

In that case, i would do color correction in After effects as well as using magic bullet to output to 24fps and then use premiere for final transitions, but make sure your settings are correct.

I think that would be the best work flow...

Oh, and do your slow motions before After Effects

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, that's pretty much how i do things, but if anyone knows of a better way, I'm always learning
