    Proud member of GTPlanet? This fortnight's theme is all about GTPlanet! Photo and livery made by @Nico_Ble99 - (click for full-size)

    This Fortnight's Theme
    GTPlanet, the forum we all know as "All things GT heaven". What would we do without it? I have no words here, so let's go into the theme:

    "@Jordan made history when he made the GTPlanet website back in 2001. If you had the chance to make a 'team GTPlanet' race car livery, or maybe already did, what would it look like to you? It's all about that logo we know so well. Don't overthink it too much, sometimes simple is better!"

    CARS: Any
    LIVERIES: A livery inspired by GTPlanet. The logo and / or gtplanet text must be present.
    LOCATIONS: Any
    SCAPES: Yes
    360° GIF: Optional
    UNIQUE RESTRICTIONS: The livery must be made using only the shapes and decals that came with the game. No user-made decals except for the GTPlanet logo and text, and if you wish, the car manufacturer logo. Failing to comply to these rules results in an immediate disqualification.

    Competition Rules

    Please, ensure you read and understand all requirements for this competition. Failure to follow the rules may result in disqualification. If you have questions, start a convo with me.

    • Preview images must not exceed 640 pixels in either direction.
    • A preview image must be representative of the full-size image. Do not add effects to it.

      it makes poll creation much easier!

    Code:
    [COLOR=red][B]FINAL ENTRY[/B][/COLOR]

    • Absolutely no entries which utilize edited/hacked file saves.
    • You may change your entry once. Do it clearly; edit out your previous entry, and
      either post the new one in a new reply, or in place of the original.
    • Do not post "Honourable Mentions" or outtakes - just your Final Entry, that's all.
    • Winner gets to choose the following Fortnight's theme.
    • Winners cannot enter in their own theme!
    • The Host may ask for the original image/livery and it must be submitted if so.
    • It's recommended to share the original livery online(in-game) to prove it’s your work.
    • You are required to use one ‘main’ photo(or 360° GIF), and if neccessary only two additional photos inside a spoiler.
    • Unique to this competition, you can also make a 360° GIF! It is not a requirement, but it is recommended.
      Go to giphy.com
      and upload your clip (In GT Sport go to My Library > Car Livery > Press your livery and then hit Preview. Record a full 360° spin and then speed up the recording to 15 seconds in a video editing program on your PC/Phone/Tablet. See example in spoiler at the bottom of the post how it should look.

      First of all, download and install Blender. I used 2.78 for this tutorial but the current one at this time, 2.79a, shouldn't be any different.

      Open Blender up and you should see a screen like this (minus all the recent files because you haven't used it yet)
      [​IMG]

      Currently, it's in its Default mode, for 3D modelling. We'll need to change it to the Video Editing mode.
      If you go up to the top where it says 'Default', click on the button outlined in red to choose the Screen layout...
      [​IMG]

      ... and click on Video Editing...
      [​IMG]

      ... and you should now be greeted with something like this.
      [​IMG]

      First things first, go down to the bottom, where it says Add. Click on that and click on Movie.
      [​IMG]

      Locate and select your recorded clip on your USB or wherever you've placed it. Click Add Movie Strip...
      [​IMG]

      ... and you should now see, along the lower section of the screen called the Video Sequence Editor, two bars. The darkish blue coloured one is the video, the teal coloured on is the audio. Don't worry about the audio, we don't need to mess with it.

      Press the Home button while your mouse cursor is in the Video Sequence Editor to see the whole sequence.

      Next you'll need to change both of the values, outlined in red, to 450. The left value is the end limit of the number of frames your final video will have, and the right value is the cursor point (the green thing that says 15+00)
      [​IMG]
      The reason why is because the 450th frame on this current project, running at roughly 30fps, would equate to 15 seconds.

      Now to speed our clip up to fit those 15 seconds. Go into Add, the Effect Strip, then select Speed Control.
      [​IMG]

      Right-click on the pink Speed strip, then go over to the sidebar on the right. Scroll down until you see the tab named Effect Strip and Untick 'Stretch to input strip length'.
      Now for a bit of Maths, you'll see in the image below that my Speed factor is 1.200...
      [​IMG]

      This is worked out by dividing the total number of frames of your clip, found on the end of your bar label (540 in my case)...
      [​IMG]
      by the total number of frames we need (450). 540 / 450 = 1.2 so I put 1.2.

      Now the clip has been sped up, press Play on the bottom to check to see if your clip runs and loops properly in the top right. You might see a fps counter pop up and slow down as you play but don't worry about that.

      Now to export the new clip, go to the top left screen part, click on the square box with an image inside and select Properties...
      [​IMG]

      ... which will change that screen part to this.
      [​IMG]

      We need to set up the export options and encoding before we export. Scroll down until you see the Output tab and select MPEG, then the Encoding tab will pop up. Open the Encoding tab and make sure you have the Format as MPEG-4, the Codec as H.264 and the Audio as AAC.
      [​IMG]

      Right, scroll back up to the top and hit the Animation button, under Render...
      [​IMG]

      ... and you should now see Blender playing through your video and rendering it.
      [​IMG]

      Once it is done, open File Explorer, go into your C:\ drive and open up the 'tmp' folder, there you should see your new video. It'll probably be named '001-450.mp4' or something.
      Drag that video into GIPHY, set the duration to 15 seconds and click through the rest and there you go.

    Very cool theme, Also those unique restrictions yikes that might take some doing, Would have preferred also being allowed to use the car manufacturers name for example but I'm sure I can work with these limitations :tup:

    Sounds good!

    Links to the GTP logos in-game or SVGs for us to upload would be handy.

    Yeah you know what, I can allow that. I'll edit the OP. PD should've had manufacturer decals in as standard anyway. :)

    Thanks. Adding to OP, I totally forgot this. I had plans for it, though. Was really tired when I made the threads last night :lol:

    Also changing a few rules, be sure to read the rules again, guys and gals!

    This week is for chosing the winner of week 1 challenge in the poll, we don't know who the winner is yet, thus the week 2 theme is posted by @syntex123 week 3 theme will be chosen by winner of the poll from week 1, from then it becomes regular - week 2 winner choses week 4 theme, week 3 winner will chose week 5 theme and so on. ^^

    This will be a real deal to show up some skills at editor ^^ good luck guys :cheers:

    Then we'll have two competitions running parallel constantly which kind of demeans the first. Hey you won but there's another comp already running which everybody else is looking at, sound a bit daft to me.

    No, #3 will be started once the winner of #1 has decided the theme.

    Just look at GT4/5/6 PMC's, it's working like this since forever

    Ah, its not the end of the world is it?

    I dont see a issue with the bit of overlap, hapens also with the GTP_WRS, I think its a "GTPlanet thing" :D. Cool theme @syntex123 ! :gtpflag: Btw, uploaded gtplanet svg's by users are allowed right?

    No Inkscape or so...:banghead: gonna cost a LOT of extra time for the plan I have. Strike that remark, Got another plan :yuck: at least... mhm (waiting on a "brain fart")
    I know @Sjaak has a very cool SF-R GTPlanet livery.

    There is a time gap between poll end and start of new week theme, usually. First two weeks are unique, because there was no winner yet for week 1 comp. Therefore OP could prepare the week 2 in advance to have no delay between poll end and week 2 announcement. If we waited till the poll end for the winner of week 1 there would be 1/2 week/s gap in between each comp, thus this overlap, but this is only for first two comps, from next week (after poll for week 1 ends) there will be only themes chosen by winners of week before as I mentioned earlier. :cheers:

    Couldn’t have explained things better myself @Mires and @Nuschel01, thanks for explaining while I was afk guys. :)

    No, poll for LEC#1 closes on sunday. This LEC#2 isn’t over for another 13 days. No overlap. No two competition overlaps. Only one to focus on.
    Thanks, thought it was only right :D

    Yes, the only uploaded decals you can use are car manufacturer decals, say the Subaru logo and/or text, and the GTPlanet logo and text. (And the number plate if you wish. All in the OP) :)

    GIFs are optional. It’s super easy to make but I guess some people found it hard. But, if you wish(and I say this to all of you) I can make that GIF for you. It takes me no more than 5 minutes from start to finish. Super easy. Or if you want a detailed video guide how I do it, let me know.


    And thanks to the moderator making it a sticky. I didn’t want to ask in case I breached some laws on borrowing the competition format. I thought it would be easier for everyone to use a familiar format instead of learning a new one with separate rules. Sure, the GIF is new but like I said and the OP says it’s optional. Highly recommended though.

    Have a small issue with livery editor, as it seems for BMW Gr.3 car i cannot add decal on the roof from the body section (by hitting R3 button to see what parts are editable, the roof stays white). I tried to look at the other section, where there is option to add decals on specific parts on the roof and after check i see the roof should be editable within this section, but one cannot move the cursor to the add decal button on the right. There seems to be a bug after last update, which messed up the editor a bit. Hope PD knows already about and will resolve this issue shortly.

    PS: not sure if it is just car choice related or editor related though, didn't check other cars yet.

    My apologies, i had the Gr.4 car with carbon roof ^^ therefore it is through the other section, but I was unable to move the cursor to actually chose the decal, it was sticked to the left panel. But works now, after I left the editor and game and came back. Thanks for check anyways. :cheers:

    Not that this complies with the rules, but here are three cars that were made with GTP in mind. Hopefully it will give inspiration for everyone... I may even adjust one for this competition :-).

    Also here are a few more more ;-)

    Just to clarify we are allowed to use the brand logos within the A-E F-O and P-Z categories correct? I have started using a few of those and the Mi Purchased logos, Just wanted to check their eligibility.

    Please do not post anything other than your final entry.

    Yes. All decals you can acquire through the Mileage Store and all other brand logos / fantasy logos within the game is allowed. The only user-made decals allowed is the GTPlanet decals and car manufacturer logos if you so choose.

    I guess I'll enter the fray first.

    FINAL ENTRY

    [​IMG]


    I wanted to make a livery that would be more in line with lower level grass-roots racing like an autocross or a local rally, maybe even a drift event. Who knows.

    Here's a download link if you'd be so inclined to want to add it to your game. https://www.gran-turismo.com/us/gts...lery/all/livery/1247310/1/6990167174625133577


    Sorry if i messed anything up,

    Edit: Finally added a 360 gif
