Rerendering NEW version of old DV NTSC film - what format?

I'm rerendering the master for a film I made in the nineties. The original was done in DV NTSC (anamorphic) ... but most of it is graphics and animations, so I know it can be improved upon. I want to output it now as clean and at as high a resolution

I'm rerendering the master for a film I made in the nineties. The original was done in DV NTSC (anamorphic) ... but most of it is graphics and animations, so I know it can be improved upon.
I want to output it now as clean and at as high a resolution possible. It had three end uses: TV network, DVD, an H-264 for web. Do I use:
1. 'uncompressed 8 bit NTSC'?
2. 'ProRes (HQ) 422 NTSC anamorphic
3. 'ProRes 422 NTSC anamorphic
Or any other possibility?
All ears... Ben

Hi Doody,
I've created an uncompressed 10bit timeline, with high resolution YUV, and I'm going to output the whole show like that. It may be overkill, and I'm not sure I can tell any difference between the 10bit and the 8bit ... but I've worked in IMAX and noticed how IMAX even when reduced to SD or even DV still looks better than anything else. So I figure I output the whole show at 10bit uncompressed ... it will have to go to .m2v for DVD's (or perhaps a lame BlueRay), but it will still look a lot better than the original output that was DV NTSC. The original DV material will always be DV, but so much of this film is graphics and animations built from higher resolution material (deep space imagery) that the end result will in fact be different I'm sure. I just found myself a fat empty drive ... and am setting the show to render out while I get some much needed Zzzz...
Thanks for your help, all the best,
Ben
