Other spotting programs help you with your initial ADR spotting, then abandon you. But the reality is, ADR consists of much more than just spotting. You have to record, transfer, cut, conform, and mix it - and often times it isn't a strict order. These days, you have to be prepared to bounce back and forth from one mode to another. For instance, you may record an actor to a particular version of the show, then find you have to go back later and record the same actor to a different version of the show. How do you keep track of what's been recorded and to what version?
ADR Manager handles it all for you by storing all versions of a reel, not just the latest, and also by giving each cue a status. These statuses describe what stage a cue exists, such as "spotted", "recorded", or "cut." Search and print cues based on their status, so you can generate line count tables and reports showing only "To be recorded" cues, for instance.
And what if you want to omit a cue, but don't want to completely delete it, in case you might use it again later? No sweat - just mark the cue as omitted and ADR Manager makes sure it won't show up in places like the "To Be Recorded" line count table.
