First Time Processing of Imported Media Takes a Long Time

I have been editing videos since two years and recently switched from Sony Vegas Pro to HitFilm Express and been loving it. However, there is a small problem I can't solve.

In Vegas, whenever I imported a media file to the timeline, it would process the media only once, in order to get all the necessary information from it like keyframes etc. After that it would never run this process again because all the information would be saved as a different file.

In HitFilm, however, I have a 90 minute video I want to work on and whenever I import it to the timeline, it takes around 10 minutes to fully process the video and until then, playback is really choppy. After waiting for 10 minutes, playback is completely smooth because processing is completed. The problem is that this process takes place every time I reopen HitFilm. Each time I start working on my video, I lose 10 to 15 minutes of my time which is getting frustrating honestly.

My PC Specs are as follows:

OS: Windows 10 64bit

CPU: AMD FX 6350


Motherboard: Gigabyte 990xa ud3 rev3.0

Ram: 2x4gb G Skill Ripjaws DDR3 1600MHZ

HDD: 2x1TB Western Digital Caviar Blue 7200 RPM

Thanks for your concern and I hope you can find a solution.
