Preferences: determine default transcode/export preset from MediaEncoder for any source's incoming file
Predetermine the output of MediaEncoder (ME) via "Preferences": ME is not only useful in the Adobe's App ballpark but also very welcome on already delivered files that need to be transcoded. Well, there is a "default destination" one can determine in the settings but there is no "default transcode" to set before one brings in files from an external source (let's say EVS ProRes(HQ) off a multi-cam recording or even an H.264 off any drone) and pre-determine the output setting.
This should be available in the settings of ME!

- obviously and as I figured out: drag your preferred ME preset into the Import window (the one, where everything piles up) and then drag and drop your sources. They will get assigned the Preset you dragged and dropped before...
However: that's an undocumented way and imho this needs to be changed and addressed in the preferences.
