It looks to me as if both team #19 and team #22 had the same issue with their early footage, it contained a lot of 'sharpening'.
Team #19: http://www.appliedvisual.com/tonaci/hero.tiff
Team #22: http://www.fxguide.com/modules/NewsU...m_tk1Still.jpg
Could it be that Red Alert! has a sharpening default setting of 100%? In the user interface I couldn't really see a sharpening slider, maybe the teams didn't see it either and thought it would be at default 0?
Trying to be Sherlock Holmes here... Graeme, can you help me out?
