I have an .mkv file I encoded awhile back with DVDFab and I am trying to copy the x264 encoding parameters when looking at the file with MediaInfo. I want to copy them into the Advanced Options tab in Handbrake so that I can use that program for encodes instead. Does anyone know how to do this? A simple copy/paste does not seem to work.

You can usually set most of the parameters by using one of the presets, then manually changing others. A few years ago I generated a list of all the options selected by the presets:
Some may have changed since then though.
In Handbrake's Extra Options box parameters are separated by colons:
Some of the names of parameters reported in MediaInfo vary from the command line arguments. For example, me-range in MediaInfo is merange on the command line.
But why do you need to do this? Using the same options don't guarantee you will get the same quality with a different video. It doesn't guarantee you can append a new video to an existing one. Etc.
