The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
What's the problem? Describe what went wrong in few words.
It seems to be a improper bloom effect that is present throughout the game but is most pronounced during certain cutscenes. It's effect is that everything in the game has a faint doubled (semi-transparent) image bordering it.
Turning off scaled-efb copy has not resolved the issue.
What did you expect to happen instead?
For the effect to either not exist or to be properly aligned with the actual object.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
[Don't assume we have ever played the game and know any level names. Be as
specific as possible.]
The effect is present throughout the entirety of the game so simply loading the game will show you the issue.

Skyward Sword uses all kinds of post processing filters to create the iconic painting visual style it is known for. And they can cause some weird sometimes, especially in the transition zones. All of these issues exist on console, but they are less apparent thanks to the lower resolution.
Closing this for now. If the OP can provide a comparison shot with console, and prove it is not there, then I'll reopen it. But this stuff is all over the game.
