What is Cuttermaran?
Cuttermaran is a cut program for MPEG1 or MPEG2 video streams. The streams can be cut without recalculation. The asynchronous between audio and video will be minimized.
Cuttermaran supports frame accurat editing, but you will need TMPGEnc 2.5 for smart rendering. There are available a few freeware encoders, too. Take a look at the provider section.
Before cutting you have to demux the video stream. My advise is the program Project X.
The video cut theory is explained at http://www.radonmaster.de/robernd/tMPEG.html (German site only).
The audio cut theory will be explained in the FAQ.
