Need advice: do I need Neoscene?

I own a Sony HVR-Z5E camcorder and always record in HDV1080 50i.
My workstation is a Dell Optiplex 745 with Core2Duo 2,6 Ghz and 8 GB RAM memory.
I edit with Adobe Premiere Pro CS5, and it will also render my final video.

Not much effects, only transitions.

Will NeoScene improve my editing experience in Adobe Premiere Pro?

Not sure you'll notice much with HDV other than increased color space if you need to do heavy grading. I find Cineform usefull still for AVCHD which really bogs my system. HDV is no problem though at least in Sony Vegas.

Yes- most modern NLEs handle HDV pretty easily natively, however one benefit you will get from NeoScene is that upon capture it will remove the pulldown from the interlaced footage. All HDV cameras embed their progressive scans inside interlaced signals. You have to use your NLE to remove it before you can edit true 25p footage.

With NeoScene you can tell it to remove the pulldown when digitizing- that way your resulting Cineform files will be TRUE progressive clips.

Anytime you can remove interlacing from the process- that's a good thing.
