ADR (Automated Dialogue Replacement)

in Film and Video Glossary, Post Production on 2023-02-03

ADR (Automated Dialogue Replacement) is a crucial process in film and video production where dialogue is recorded after the visuals have been captured. It enables filmmakers to get the best sound quality possible, even if the on-set audio was subpar or unusable.

To achieve this, the dialogue is recorded in a soundproof studio using specialized equipment. The actor performs their lines along with the pre-recorded visuals, syncing their dialogue to match the lip movements on screen. This process results in clear and consistent audio that seamlessly blends with the visuals.

ADR is especially important for action and adventure films, where the on-set sounds may be too noisy or distracting. In such cases, ADR provides the opportunity to create a more immersive and believable audio experience for the audience.

Good ADR is essential for creating a seamless and immersive audio experience for the audience. It helps to reinforce the dialogue, making the world of the film or video production feel more real and tangible.ADR (Automated Dialogue Replacement)
