One of the most important elements of the audio track is the dialogue - not only from the creative sense, but technically. The dialogue editors work hard to make sure the audience can hear the everything the actors are saying and that it's free and clean of any background noise or distracting sounds. While the dialogue editors may try hard to remove the background noise, or even smooth it out, sometimes there is no other option than to re-record the dialogue.  This process is called Automated Dialogue Replacement (ADR), and in this module you're going to learn the process of properly using ADR to improve the quality of your dialogue track.
