Agents,
Awesome work, so far you’ve entered the location of seven files into the MacHeist mainframe. I’m not sure how long this can keep up, but we’ve received another message containing:

Not another 10.5 app!!

Maybe a piece of Red cellophane in front of the picture?

Here's to the crazy ones.  The Macheisters.  But most importantly, here's to Team Orange.

I wasn't expecting to see myself on the primary screen after reading macheist on the secondary screen. "Look Beyond the Red" startled me. xD

The app takes the video from the iSight and filters out everything but the red channel, it seems.

Yep, it reveals a picture which needs to be flipped... use Preview's built-in Flip Vertical tool.

This works for Tiger users...

I don't get what to do with the mainframe, so if I don't get that, I'm so stuffed.

Wow I'm wasting so much time on this......

If you don't want to print the image out or don't have a (working) iSight, open the filter in Quartz Composer.app. Double-click the file in Resources after showing the package contents of the app and QC should open automatically.

In QC, disconnect the Video Input and connect No iSight's output Image port to Image Transform's input Image port. Click No iSight to select, open the Patch Inspector, choose Settings from the dropdown, and Import the cryptic file. Open the Viewer and Run the filter.
