Thx, that's right - I don't know why or how the Render "Make new file 
box" was checked on my MSI workstation.
Unchecked it and the above file rendered ok.

A minor visual notice, why differ the Render button geometries between 
my two workstations with the same, latest Cin-GG appimage installation?
See the attached screenshot,  the top Render window with square and 
round buttons vs the bottom Render window with romb buttons.

One render option combination that Cin-gg regular reported error message 
(invalid or not supported), was as shown on the screenshot
h265-10bit.mp4 compression and yuv422p10le pixels
Is this correct?

I succeeded to rendered further combinations and cleaned up my file name 
syntax as follows:

du -sh hd01.mov hd01*app*.mp4

1,7G    hd01.mov (input 10bit ProRes HQ file)
70M    hd01_cin_appimage_ffmpeg_h264-10bit_yuv422p10le.mp4
72M    hd01_cin_appimage_ffmpeg_h264_yuv420p.mp4
80M    hd01_cin_appimage_ffmpeg_h264_yuv422p10le.mp4
82M    hd01_cin_appimage_ffmpeg_h264_yuv422p.mp4
0    hd01_cin_appimage_ffmpeg_h265-10bit_yuv422p10le.mp4 (failed)
26M    hd01_cin_appimage_ffmpeg_h265-10bit_yuv422p.mp4
26M    hd01_cin_appimage_ffmpeg_h265_yuv422p.mp4
26M    hd01_cin-multi_appimage_ffmpeg_h265-10bit_yuv422p10le.mp4
26M    hd01_cin-multi_appimage_ffmpeg_h265-12bit_yuv422p12le.mp4
26M    hd01_cin-multi_appimage_ffmpeg_h265_yuv422p10le.mp4
26M    hd01_cin-multi_appimage_ffmpeg_h265_yuv422p.mp4

I think it could be useful if it is possible to add some overview 
table(s) i.e in the manual section FFmpeg Format Options inside 
That is, valid and Standard Profiles with Compression and Pixels 
properties for actual purposes and media, that works for Cin-GG and 
Cin-GG multibit respectively?
