I shoot in AVCHD and output the video as a high quality WMV file before uploading it to YouTube. The image quality of the video still looks OK to me online but I guess it also depends on your own personal standard. I don’t think it’s ever a good idea to sacrifice the quality of your raw footage especially if you are planning to use it for business.
Adobe suite of software are really targeted at professionals who are in established production businesses. There are many other choices out there that cater to businesses with less budget. Just google around for reviews and I am sure you will find one that fits your needs.
All the best in your new venture!
