VideoCutTool copy the wrong description in after post-processing

What happens?:

Somehow it extracted the data from the first upload, which in these two cases (and I believe in most cases) doesn't make sense and doesn't fit into the description parameter (imagine if the description contain another two curly brackets)

Of course we can edit it, but it shouldn't be there in the first place. There are many ways to pre-fill the description. I kinda expected it will prefill with everything from the original file, like CropTool do.

What should have happened instead?:

the description from the original file was brought over, the description should match the original description. If it's hard to parse the data, just copy the whole content of the file page, like what CropTool do.

If it's uploaded as a new file, then you may add
|source={{Derived from|1=blablabla}}
{{Extracted from|File:blablabla}}

if it's not (it's being overwritten instead), then don't offer those two templates.

Software version (skip for WMF-hosted wikis like Wikipedia):
