Did Seinfeld use a live studio audience, or did the show combine canned laughter with that of a live studio audience, or only canned laughter?

It's a laugh track. First, Seinfeld was filmed with multiple takes per scene, yet the audience's laughter has perfect continuity through retakes and camera position changes. Also, cameras that should be spotted by other cameras aren't, which indicates the camera position change and retakes.

Uhhhhhhhh..... anyway... to answer your question Anetski, The show was filmed in front of a live audience, then laugh tracks were added during post production. For example, you can hear the studio audience applaud when characters enter... especially Kramer.

...And by the way, all sitcoms use three cameras continually rolling. They're all stationary for the most part, and never interfere with each others field of views.

It's a live audience in the studio, and canned laughter for outdoor and "location" scenes. Like Jimmy said, all sit-coms are recorded this way. They do add canned laughter to the studio audience, but their audio is in there too.

For outdoor and "location" scenes they tape it & then later on show it to the audience.

Really? I've always wondered about that. Sometimes, something that happens in the studio (Jerry's aprtment) is only funny if you saw what happened earlier somewhere else. So, i always wonder if the studio audience even knows what's going on sometimes.

The notes about nothing say several times that shows filmed without an audience like the parking garage and the subway are later played for an audience to get the laugh track.

That's what I thought they did, tape and show it for an audience.

I also read that the audience was told to hold their applause when Kramer busted through Jerry's door because it was disrupting the flow for the actors.

That's interesting about the audience holding it's applause for Kramer. Jimmy's noticed that in some shows, only a few people react, as if they intentionally wanted to be able to say later..."Hey, that was ME that you hear cheering for Kramer!"

I'm pretty sure that they filmed all the episodes at that revolving restaurant that overlooks Time Square, and I know for a fact that Christopher Cross played all of the intro and interlude music LIVE.
