Important: Users of macOS 10.15.x Catalina up to macOS 12.x Monterey shall use the download link to previews (apps only) in the package.

Or use the link here:
zeitAnker Annotation Apps Preview 2.0.71
The archive now includes supplemental versions notarized by Apple. Please move them out of the Downloads folder before use.

Apple Motion Templates for use with Final Cut Pro .fcpxml export by Annotation Edit and zeitanker Teletext are provided here:
FCP X zeitAnker AE Subtitle X Motion Templates

The Catalina/Big Sur/Monterey previews are updated frequently. Version 2.0.54 improves stability on Big Sur and Apple Silicon (Rosetta 2).
Installers in the main distribution are not yet notarized, please open them with right or control click on macOS Catalina or higher.

Please note: Final Cut Pro 10.6 shows an .fcpxml import bug (verified by Apple).
It imports .fcpxml only when region and language are set to English, US/UK in System Preferences.
Please consider updating to Final Cut Pro 10.6.1.

Movies exported from Annotation Edit 2.x.x for Final Cut Pro X must not have a calculated fps of near zero. In this case prefer export as images with .fcpxml.

Please note: Annotation Edit 1.9.x.x and many other 32 bit apps that use audio may not open any more, if a recent version of iTunes or "iTunes Sync Update" for iPhone was installed.

In this case we recommend to use our 64 bit version for macOS Catalina instead.
The 64 bit version for macOS Catalina also works on macOS 10.10 and newer. No need to update to macOS Catalina, but it is required for macOS Catalina.
This issue and an alternative solution is described here at Apple.
