[FFmpeg-user] Setting VUI and SEI parameters

Dear all,
as many of you might know, HEVC allows to set VUI and SEI parameters, allowing a very well defined future of video. But the big question is: how can we influence these parameters? I'm searching for a solution, either with FFMPEG (preferred) or a external tool.

The parameters I need to encode/influence are:
VUI (see page 294 of HEVC standard)
1) colour_primaries
2) transfer_characteristics

SEI (see page 278 of HEVC standard)

1) ref_screen_luminance_white
2) extended_range_white_level
3) nominal_white_level_code_value

Side Info:
SEI is part of NAL parameters

Further references:
Section E.3 (beginning page 297) in this document: http://www.itu.int/rec/T-REC-H.265-201304-S

Any help and thought is welcome.

Beste Grüße / best regards,

Florian Friedrich
