I just have to ask, does everybody use that kind of text (clipping mask) at this forum?
I looked at 3 topics and all 3 had the same kind of text.
Sorry It doesn't blend at all, try get the render and background be one image instead of
2 seperate like they are right now.
Smudging, using C4D's, brushing and many more methods could be used to get more flow and blending.
