AVCHD vs ProsRes 422

So earlier I asked about the best intermediate format for footage that retains video quality, and it seems ProRes 422/HQ would be best.

What I've found is if a composite shot is made from an AVCHD file, scrubbing is fine.

When it's exported as ProRes 422, then imported into a sequence of AVCHD files scrubbing starts to stutter rather badly when it's gets to the ProRes clip.

Anyone have an idea why this happens?

It definitely makes editing set pieces and then dropping them into a longer sequence rather difficult.

I'm on MacOs using hitfilm express 2017, btw.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
