I am sure someone has thought about this before, but would it be possible to reproduce the actual 1967 races using GPL, with commentary and views from trackside as well as from the cars? I am sure an enterprising video editor could make a GPL video look just like the real thing.

Even so GPL looks very good for its age, you won`t be able to make a GPL video look just like it is the real thing. You might be able to get close to the real thing only with moderns sims, like Assetto Corsa, projectCars2 and so on, but not with GPL.
That aside it would be a lot of work to do. Lot of capturing, lot of editing, commentary work and so on.
Sorry, but it won`t become my project.

But you could start yourself?!

We have historical carsets which are as accurate as it can be in terms of cars, drivers and their pace.

I believe there are even Spa67 AI files in which the race is 'directed' as it were in real life if you select Grand Prix mode.
You cannot get much more accuracy to history as that.

But reproduce it including commentary?
We have replaydirector which might help getting a TV-like experience but I believe it still is in a development phase with things to sort out.
I'd pass on this myself.

Somewhere here is my years ago post about making movies that replicate actual races, using GPL drivers as actors.
Organization equals implementation.

Maybe not so difficult if with +/- twenty minutes coverage per race, (typical half-hour tv program), rather than full race coverage.


Hattip to MECH for making the 67 Monza GP cartoon.
Which I cannot find atm...?
Anyone?


:D

Yes, there are.  Plus, there are AI files sets for 1967 F1, 1965 F1 and 1967 WSC with as accurate as you may find qualy and race action.  ;)

I would love to see a race commentary movie produced and directed by Slomoe.
Even if it was just one of the '67 GPs.

It would be asking a lot from a human to duplicate exactly what the real driver did for 2 hours. That would be times the number of drivers in the real race. I don't think it's possible to get the AI to do it.

Cover the story of the race as in a TV program about it.
Recreate significant events.

Such as:
Driver stalls in pits - driver overtakes on lap 28 - driver's touch in esses...


Thank you Ginetto
:D
