However, few of the locations in Spain existed without any such modern relics.
The arrangement was to film however much in genuine areas as could reasonably be expected, and after that broaden and improve these through computerized situations.

Amid recording of key areas in Spain, Nogales and his group invested energy catching references that would help with their later Visual Effects exertion.
“In the greater part of the scenes that we had later intercession,” says Nogales, “we generally had references of light, round photographs with sectioning for HDRis – to assist us with the lighting of the set in 3D – and photogrammetry of the set to assist us with the matchmove.
Now and again the photogrammetry was finished with the assistance of automatons that shot the bigger sets, for example, the port or Castle of San Jorge.
“Also, a ton of additional items were checked, beforehand dressed and made up in period outfits keeping in mind the end goal to have a library of advanced pairs that we utilized both in scenes of group and in expansions of foundations of, say, individuals just walking around the boulevards or mariners in the watercrafts of the port.”
The renowned Visual Effects Supervisor of Twin Pines, Juanma Nogales is of the view that in some of the cases, the techs of Photogrammetry was done with the assistance of some drones that helped to photograph the huge sets such as the port or San Jorge Castle.
