Beyond the obvious development methods (modelling the characters, props, crafting the "set" levels, etc.) we will be hopefully using extremely high poly-counts, because of information I received from Gabe Newell about the capabilities of Source.
Normally a game engine must render the 3D environment and its inhabitants in real time, so that the user can play the game. However, because the SF team will be making movies, we do not need real-time rendering. According to Mr. Newell (email me if you would like a copy of the email), we will be able to record the output of Source as a movie, which can be set at whatever framerate we want. Therefore, we can create extremely high-quality worlds, which will then be rendered into a ~30fps movie. Since the content is so high-poly, the movie might take two-three times as long to render, but the viewer won't experience this, because the movie will then be a static file, just like any other .avi (or whatever format we use).
Any artists interested please send work samples to email@example.com. Thanks!
