work flow question with vegas 9e, virtual dub deshaker and cineform

i am new at Vegas 9, and finally successfully installed deshaker and virtual dub which recognize my cineform files. my question is retaining the best image quality of my wildlife footage, all shot in 60i.

1. do i start with virtual dub and deshake some of the grab footage where a tripod couldnt be set up in time (whales from a boat, sea otters from a kayak, birds while hiking etc), then edit in vegas, or

2. edit in vegas then deshake footage that needs to be stabilized.

3. do those of you experienced deinterlace cineform to 30p and edit, or keep it in 60i for color correction, brightness contrast, very little slo mo.

thanks in advance to those experience who are willing to share information to newbies. bill

i should share a little more information. i shot hdv with a canon xha1, and this year just started shooting a canon xfs100 vixia in avchd. both are transferred into cineform through neoscene 4, which i just upgraded to neoscene 5.04 which now recognizes my cfhd avi files.

so only some of my footage is shot from a boat or kayak, or sometimes a grab shot of a bear or bird in the backcountry. i tripod wherever i can.

it seems to make sense to rough edit first in vegus, cut clips to lengths and footage. but the next step is the question. do i deshake first then edit in vegus, or edit in vegas, put it into a cineform file again, deshake what i need? just trying to minimize as best i can IQ loss. thanks again in advance. bill
