It only cuts on key frames.
It does not appear to support reading or saving cut files so it doesn't work with programs that identify where commercials are in the movie file.
It DOES work with h.264 with variable frame rate! But I need frame accurate cutting (not key-frame cutting).

I bought this software, I LOVE IT! I use Machete for FLV and MP4 editing. Also for MP3! And it make really true cuts! Previously I tried the following programs:

Free Video Dub - this is without any flexible playback (it is the most horrible playing) and can't work with MP4 as it should be. (My mobile phone have QuickTime MP4 video with audio compression SAMR).

Cute Video Dub - output video show 3 seconds black screen at beginning of video! It does not support my MP4 too! It can only Trim, not remove unwanted cuts.

SolveigMM Video Splitter - it warning me about audio in MP4, even this it work. But does not support FLV (AVC/H264) versus their description in website! It show me corrupt input video from several years!

My MP4Box GUI - required Netframe and FLV is not supported.

Machete - work with all described, except one only format! Except MOV. But i am using QuickTime Player for this.
In other words - MACHETE is the most functional program I've seen for editing without re-encode! The most luxury modern program! It worth the money! Thank You Machete! :))

You need to have a key frame as start or end of selection. No smart rendering unlike Virytualdub or Avidemux. To pay fro such a software is an absolute waste of money when you have so many better featured freeware editors available.
