Do you mean seamless branching If so, yes it should support branching (and multiple angles) if your content is authored properly.

It also supports the seamless flag in the playlist if that is by chance what you were asking about... however simply setting the seamless = "true" to two primaryAVclips doesn't gaurantee they will be seemless. the last two seconds of the first piece and the first two seconds of the second peice of video that you want to be seemless must meet encoding limitations defined in the spec, in I think annex K. for those specific seconds around the jump which you want to be seamless there's buffer limitations, average and peak bitrate limitations as well the two pieces must be placed on the physical disc within a certain number of sectors from each other, basically close enough that the laser has enough time to seek to the new piece and read in before the buffer runs out.
