Annotation Edit 1.1
Berlin-based zeitAnker has released Annotation Edit 1.1, the first official release of the software for professional subtitling, captioning, and video annotation. Annotation Edit 1.1 caters to video/DVD-production and educational environments, offering tight integration with Apple's Final Cut Pro software and DVD Studio Pro with 'flawless' export, according to zeitAnker. The application can import style as well as position of DVD Studio Pro tracks, SSC closed captions, and STL EBU. Annotation Edit 1.1 also exports multi-track QuickTime data, and offers automatic audio spotting. The software requires Mac OS X 10.4.5 or later with QuickTime 7.1 or newer, runs natively on Intel-based Macs as a Universal Binary, and is available for $350.
