chapter  5
Dialogue editing and replacement
Pages 23

Every project will be given to the dialogue editor in a different track arrangement. The picture editor may have been very organized and placed all temp effects in dedicated tracks, temp music in other dedicated tracks, and the dialogue may even be more or less split off. Or everything may be a jumble with music, effects, and dialogue all over the place and even some dialogue out of sync. The project will probably be delivered as an open media framework (OMF) that will need to be translated into a Pro Tools project with DigiTranslator. The OMF may reference audio files that are delivered on CD or DVD or it may be self-contained, with all of the audio embedded into the OMF. Video may be delivered as a QuickTime or on videotape.
