You know, HD video files have up to six times the resolution of SD compressed into about the same file size. Its a heavy compression. And the video codec AVCHD or H.264 codes is actually a finishing codec. When you edit with this it is highly compressed. The computer has to decompress the file before you can even see it on the screen. So when you add edits, transitions, titles and so forth, these put an even greater strain on your CPU. That's why your AVCHD clips stutter and drop frames when you preview in a NLE. Though the newer full-fledged NLEs will edit AVCHD files, they also require powerful, robust computers and cannot handle the Sony 1080P/1080i AVCHD footage well. These make AVCHD so demanding for native editing.
