What Is EdiCue?
EdiCue is an application that allows sound editors and supervisors to create ADR cues and department notes within Pro Tools. These cues and notes are generally created after a spotting session and ideally before anyone starts working on the sound for the project – including the scheduling of actors for record.
Once all cues and notes have been created, EdiCue exports a range of files including ADR scripts and files to aid with the recording process. These files can be loaded into our partner app EdiPrompt while actors are recorded. EdiPrompt displays the cues on-screen and helps automate the recoding process when using Pro Tools.
