 Summary of the bug:


 I encountered the following problem:

 I need to transfer video files encoded by ProRes and DNxHD from the "MKV"
 container to the native "MOV" container.

 When I copy a video from the "MKV" container to the " MOV " container, the
 following metadata is not saved:
 - Color range (Limited)
 - Color primaries (bt2020)
 - Transfer characteristics (PQ)
 - Matrix coefficients (bt2020nc)

 This as I noticed happens for codecs DNxHD and ProRes, but for example for
 codec H265 this error is not present.

 Please tell me how to save this metadata for the "MOV" container with the
 ProRes and DNxHD codecs.

 How to reproduce:
 % ffmpeg -i "temp_prores_file.mkv" -map 0:0 -c:v copy -c:a copy -y

 ffmpeg 4.3 (on Manjaro Linux)
