EdiCue enables sound editors to create ADR Cues and Department Notes within Pro Tools. It can create PDF scripts in various formats and generate files that trigger audio beeps or vision wipes to assist the recording process. Available in OS X (Universal Binary) and Windows (XP - Win7), the program initially runs in demonstration mode (fully featured) for three days.

WHY CREATE CUES IN PRO TOOLS SESSIONS?
The most efficient way to create cues is from within Pro Tools. This new workflow not only speeds up the process of creating cues, but these cue tracks can be used by other editors or mixers as an indication of what work is in progress.
If pictures are re-cut while cueing, cue timing can easily be updated by grouping cue tracks to edit tracks during the re-conform. Once the edit tracks have been re-conformed (either manually or using third-party software like EdiTrace), the cues can be played with the new pictures to update timing or text as required.
- Session Interface window simplifies entry and automatically spell checks ADR Cues, Department Notes and Scene Description text. The following dictionaries are currently available: American English, British English, Canadian English, German post-reform, Norwegian Bokmål
- Extracts character lines and scene descriptions directly from PDF shooting scripts
- Cues films or television episodes using footages or timecodes
- Loads multiple reels of a film from one session (now available when using footages)
- Set scene numbers in each cue, or by creating region groups on a 'Scene Number' track at scene change points
- Prints PDFs in various formats and colors Example PDFs
- Creates MIDI files containing markers, cue beeps, vision wipe commands or text cue commands that can be read by EdiPrompt or the VM-15 HD Streamer/Punch Inserter
- Exports separate XML/text files for each character that can be loaded into ADR Studio, AV Media Pyxis, Colin Broad VS-1 visual streamer, VoiceQ, ADR Manager or EuroTaker
- Exports all ADR cues as XML files or tab/comma delimited text files
- Exports ADR Cues as script files to burn-in subtitles into quicktime movies
- Sets the Text Encoding (character set) used while loading and saving text files, required for compatibility with international characters
- Generates unique cue numbers during print or assigns custom cue numbers while logging cues
- Configures a MIDI Solutions Relay to trigger GPI devices
- Store the settings and last cue number(s) printed for up to 30 productions

Skyfall - 007
EdiCue was used exclusively for ADR cueing on SKYFALL, I love this software.
Seven Pounds - Sony Pictures
EdiCue is fabulous and it takes no time to learn how to use. The ease of it's interface with Pro Tools, it's cue sheeting options, and most importantly, it's ease in conforming sessions; takes hours off the ADR Supervisors process.
Finally; there is an ADR program that can exist within your actual Pro Tools session, and be conformed just like any other track.

Worlds Greatest Dad
I have used EdiCue on every show I have worked on in the past three years. It has completely cut down my preparation time for ADR cue lists, and really continues to impress clients with its clear and concise ADR reporting. I most recently used it on “World’s Greatest Dad,” starring Robin Williams. I continue to implement EdiCue in editorial in every way I can, including foley spotting. Edicue is an extremely viable asset and tool.

The Pacific - 424 Post
We recently used EdiCue on The Pacific (HBO) and Quarantine (Screengems) and were consequently able to cue ADR under one application and easily update and personalize cue sheets. EdiCue is intuitive fully supported software and has improved our ADR process so that we can work smarter on a fully traceable system.
