in the whole scheme of things, HDV is a crap format, it's not a codec. HDV uses MPEG-2, which in itself is also a fomat that does not dictate a codec. Both HDV and MPEG-2 are 8 bit with MPEG-2 using the best of 4:2:2 so gradients from graphics or 3d renders will always look less than good.

Lossless? Uncompressed? Depends what background you are from and what you want to deliver to, and another reason why I pointed you towards that previous thread.

On order to determine what codec or codecs are best for you, one would need to understand your worflow and what limitations you have in terms of technology, time, money and knowledge, but ultimatley it's what you want to deliver your content to. In other words, there's no point in having an uncompressed 4:4:4 16bit workflow if you are delivering to Flash!
