I have been using Particle Illusion 3 for sometime now and love it! I recently bought a new Canon XH-A1 HDV camera and am taking the painful trip to conversion to the Hi-Def world. The quality of my footage is amazing and driving me to convert. I am just not sure how PI3 fits into my workflow. I am using AspectHD avi compression to capture my HDV footage and it seems not to be compatible with PI3. Maybe a sizing issue? I can't imagine video life without PI3 as it has become one of my most used and impressive tools in my toolbox.
