there's a video if your scroll down, from 4:00 onwards is a perfect example of what I'm talking about, I'm wondering did they have to rotoscope all the people and things out to be able to composite those CGI effects behind them, or is there some magical other way they did this?

Yes - doing this for a living I can assure you that its all rotoscoping. When people talk about all this magical VFX work just being done "on computers" I dont think they realise that armies of artists sit in dark rooms doing nothing but rotoscoping on pretty much any film involving CGI. With the best greenscreen setup in the world, there is usually need for some additional roto to get shots right.
