There were lots of cameramen to paint out in this sequence and the roto prep and tracking work although invisible now, were trickier than you would imagine or even notice were VFX shots.

Atomic cleaned up and painted out inconsistencies to the already beautiful backplates for this scene. Wire removals as Meryl climbs Rapunzels tower were also needed for this Hollywood classic.
