This is a Great program one of the few that can keep the saved product's sound and vision in sync no matter what.
One small improvment would be have the display work on more than one desktop resolution, at present you have to be running 1024x576.
With more and more HTPC being built using domestic TV receivers, not PC monitors, the addition of 600x800 mode for domestic TV receivers would make Cuttermaran perfect.
