Are you kidding?  However good HD is, it's still an uneccessary number of
transfers, format/medium changes etc.  The 35mm neg carries around 50Mbytes
of data per frame. Transferring down to a few Mbytes of HD must lose
quality. Transferring at all must lose quality.

STAY ON FILM.  

Edit non-linear, cnvert the EDL to a cutting list, match the negative -
you're right back to the original generation. What could be better?
