    video watch it in 1440p!:

    time lapse (warning extremely long):
    ----------------------------------------
    i personally dislike this one... i don't know why, i've spend alot of time in this project (you will see in the upcoming time lapse)
    also i really did my best. i am serieus but this was a little too hard to remake :(
    -----------------------------------------
    not recommended to watch: EU version
    -----------------------------------------
    alright then here we gonna have the story line of the making of these intro's:

    OVERALL (drive of your life part and intro):
    the drive of your life part,
    camera and stabilization problems... and with problems MAJOR PROBLEMS
    it was almost impossible for me to get the car after the logo shake right and stabilized.
    the lines that should be moving in the background were really hard to make
    in total of 271.653 particle render with turbulance simulation, glow and motion blur is not easy..
    also rendering 12 realtime, 1440p video's in AVI uncompressed format is almost not possible to make it play fluently
    even worse was the 3x 52 names that were constantly switching to render in (got 1 frame per 8 seconds)

    the intro,
    the rotating camera of the car was an hell to make i am serieus!
    modding AC to night was also a major headache to have
    getting the rotating camera in sync with the music was also not cool.
    flickering textures in-game made it real hard to get an good shot
    overall: stabilization was the most time taker ever!

    EU:
    gigantic audio problems of all EU intro's i've listened to,
    unbalanced audio, crackling sounds, buzzing noises, not clear sounds..
    had to re-record and re-mix the whole soundtrack and re-master it to make it sound clear and balanced
    you can still hear some buzzing noise in the beginning but very subtle
    intro had to look aggressive and hard cuts are a little too visible in this one cannot re-edit this

    US:
    de-synced at some points so that's why it sounds a little off on some points
    had trouble getting some shots at the right time

    JP:
    wierd bpm in this one
    de-synced car noises in the beginning
    reversed audio balance, cannot fix this

  11. Strange cause i was 13 when gt4 was out. This intro put me back 12 years ago and I still got chills !

    This was awesome mate :)

    By the way don't know why but in France we got the JP intro, the best one IMO ;)

    Thanks again for sharing !

    The memories though!
    Really outstanding work mate, I couldnt do that.
    Always good to be doubting one's self though - keeps the motivation going.

    You have to work on your starting though ;)

    on my starting? [o_O] what do you mean (i'm not an native English speaker btw)

    for the short update if anyone is going to complain about the intro quality, i know all the problems but this is something that can't be fixed since i can't save camera positions and a whole lot of other options

    How nice! You put effort you put into this...I really appreciate it and think it turned out great. If you still see points of improvement, fair enough. But things don't always have to be perfect so you should be proud of yourself.
    For me it's fantastic and puts me back into my room in my parent's house in front of my telly with my friends collecting car after car after car in lengthy sessions...good times :)
