Aligning Dialog

When working with dialog, it might be necessary to adjust the timing of certain lines to compensate for camera moves, tricky edits, or even ADR recording.

When camera angles change in a scene, sometimes directors will use a person’s line from another camera angle, and therefore a line from another take. This alternate take might overlap images of the character performing the same lines from the original take. When this happens, editing between the two takes right when the angle changes might work, but often the continuity is lost and the first take must overlap the image of the second take. If luck is with you, the lip-sync will match. If not, you might have to alter the take to match the image. Likewise, sometimes an actor is not able to recreate a performance in the ADR studio that matches well to the picture. In a case like this, you might need to alter the dialog audio to match the original.
