Uncompressed, means NOT compressed, full frames

DirectShow DV, is a compression codec.

I don't understand your question, how does this relate to a Chromanator problem?

I wanted to know if I should save my projects as directshow or not, even though that means I have to get a new software, Is there any quality differenses?

One of the main reasons to use a codec is to save hard drive space, uncompressed video take up a lot of room. My advice is to use the DirectShow DV codec. Most editing software programs will import footage compressed with a DV codec, you'll have to shop around if your current NLE won't support it.
