Comment (by mario66):

 AFAIK, x265 (the encoder I used) already supports both HDR10+ and Dolby
 Vision. I wonder, though, why it is still not applied in ffmpeg. I gave it
 a try just recently and still all the meta data are lost. It must be
 something in ffmpeg that does not enable this meta data transfer properly.
