How were the homeworld images on the Spyro wiki made?

Hello everyone. I've been looking at the Spyro wiki for images of the YotD home worlds, and I immediately knew I wanted more of them. They're wide, and the thing with the draw distance causing low-detail models to appear in the distance isn't present at play, making them impossibly beautiful.

Here's the one for Midnight Mountain:

The person who uploaded them seems to have not contributed to the wiki since 2015, and I'm honestly curious about how these images were produced. If anyone here knows the procedure, or where else to find the original uploader, I'd appreciate it, as I want to make them with different shots and angles, and at 1080p.

Yes, that does exactly what I needed!

It took a while to figure out how to properly extract the WADs (by myself), but I'm glad I got some captures with it. Thanks for linking me to the program!

I really ought to go back to Haunted Tombs and pay attention not to the level, but to the snake. All those golems and all those rhynocs would off themselves anyway.
