    Question time. I've never found out what ADR is, but I was wondering if it has anything to do with the dialog cracking that I hear on quite a bit of my movies, LDs and DVDs. Can anyone confirm this? Possibly cite a really bad (or good) example. Thanks.

    ADR-Automatic Dialogue Replacement is if anything, the reason why you don't hear more "cracking" (not sure what you mean by this). It's where they go back in the studio and fix unclear dialogue by having the actor dub himself. Also called 'looping'

    ADR (Automated Dialogue Replacement) is the process of re-recording production dialogue during post-production. This is done for either technical or performance reasons.

    The "crackling" you describe is probably distortion on the production audio tracks that, for one reason or another, was not replaced. Either that or your system is introducing the distortion.
