ADR tips and tricks
 
Hey all--

I've been recording ADR for a long while on WaveFrame, and in the last 2 years every job needs to be ported to Pro Tools for delivery. I'd love to just do the dang job in Pro Tools! Do you use any special software add-ons, or just record with the software as-is? How do you handle file naming, beep placement, etc.?

Thanks all,

dopplah

Make a file of beeps and cut that into the timeline.

Buy VocAlign the Plug-In.

Re-name your record tracks the same as the upcoming cue number, and the files will automatically be named incrementally by take i.e: 2001-1, 2001-2, 2001PU-1, etc.
Make a beep file using 1k pops, then spot to the in footage, then hit option-H and shift it earlier 2 seconds (or 3 feet, whichever timescale you're using).
Hope this helps and doesn't annoy

Or put your sync point ("apple" + ",") at the end of the ADR cue beep region. And just spot to the sync point for each line... ("Shift" + "Control")

Hmm, that made more sense in my head - don't think it came out so well....

Create a beep file, and spot the beep file so you get a three beep countdown (like the MicroLynx would do). Consolidate your created countdown into a single file. Place your cursor where the talent is supposed to come in with the line, then switch to the grabber, and control+Apple+click the countdown region and it will spot the tail of the countdown to where the talent is supposed to come in.

I also need lights, so I created a super-secret solution to fire off a light in sync with the countdown.

It helps immensely if you have non-linear picture.

Being subjected every day to using pro-tools to do ADR, I seriously suggest you get a synchronizer to do ADR with Pro-Tools.

Good one Chief Technician, after all my years (10) of using Pro Tools, I only RECENTLY started using the grabber+control+apple shortcut (how lame of me). A bit easier than option+H...duh

Hi Henchman,
why the synchronizer?

Please elaborate as to why you feel this way.

Hi Chief
"Please elaborate as to why you feel this way"

"you" meaning me, or Henchman?

Re: ADR tips and tricks
 
I'd like Henchman to elaborate. I used to use a synchronizer to do this and I prefer using PT.
