Premiere Video Effects rendering in Cineform quality ?

I have a technical question to the Cineform experts.
I am testing the Prospect HD/2K demo version on my CS3/windows installation...

I understand, that only the Cineform Video effects will run in realtime - using the Premiere effects will need rendering in Premiere. I also understand that one of the main advantages using the Cineform intermediate codec is the much better multi-generation quality. So after a render done the picture stays at visually same high picture quality as the source material, rather than producing significant quality drops each time when rendering - saw the pictures on the Cineform website.

Here is my question:
What happens when I need to render non-Cineform Video effects as supplied with Premiere CS3 package. As this is no Cineform, will it keep the quality as expected ? Or is the mentioned benefit of multi-generation advantage only available when using the Cineform Video effects

Another question:
Can I use the new Time-remapping function (CS3) also within Cineform projects - it seems this is not possible...

Thanks for kind answer to a newby on the forum...

(EX1 is doing great, thanks I got so many information on the forum...)

The best quality is maintained using any effect or filter -- no worries there. In the official 3.3 version, I expect it will be released this week, this is a control to show you which filters are 32-bit float.

We don't do the time remapping in real-time playback, but can use it without any quality concerns.
