Summary0001688: Allow to set current DCP properties from existing DCP
Description

For some operations, it is essential to set the current DCP properties to the same as an existing/loaded DCP. E.g. for OV/VF creations, DCP standard conversions (IOP->SMPTE, Encrypted to unencrypted or vice versa). If source and target DCP parameters are the same, conversion can take place without recompression.

While one may look up most of these parameters one by one and adjust manually, it would be easier and safer to read the essential parameters immediately from the pre-existing DCP.

Maybe another 'right-click' context menu option in the source/content tab? I don't see any other realistic way to assess parameters from a specific source file/DCP in the current GUI. While strictly, a function to set DCP parameters should be under the DCP tab, one would have to use a nasty method to push through to source content from there. Maybe, after a content-right-click operation has been performed, bring the user to the DCP tab immediately for him to check parameters?
