IMO users often want encoding settings that fit the input file (source) 
quality and easy adjustments for the purpose of the output file.
If Cin-GG/ffmpeg automatic could setup default format and render 
options/parameters/preset this way, it would be a good starting point.
Maybe Cin-gg already is not far away from something like this?

Again, to use my source file as an example:

ffprobe hd01.mov
Input #0, mov,mp4,m4a,3gp,3g2,mj2, from 'hd01.mov':
     creation_time   : 2016-02-23T23:49:21.000000Z

yuv422p10le(tv, bt709/unknown/unknown, top coded first (swapped)), 
1920x1080, 182130 kb/s, SAR 1:1 DAR 16:9, 25 fps, 25 tbr, 2500 tbn, 2500

As this source file is a 10-bit 422 video with pcm audio, I think the 
following render setup could fit automatic:
Setting Format: rgb(a)-float color model
Render File Format: FFMPEG mp4
Video compression: h264-10bit.mp4 user opti. h265-10bit.mp4
Pixels : yuv422p10le
Bitrate: ?
Quality: ?
Preset: Medium default w/i.e user purpose adjustment faster/slower
Audio: would it be possible and compliant to have the option to just 
copy the source PCM audio?

(Another one for "home-made HD videos" on Blu-ray discs (BDAV):
Will it be possible to record (copy) source 1080iHDV.m2t files (video 
and audio) to the BD-R(E) discs?)
