Hmm, the motion blur thing doesn't look good. Just pixelated.
I like how you colored the render to fit the bg better, but the bg is just to plain So is the text.
Try duplicating the render about three times and place them around the main render in sort of a triangle, then make a gaussian blur about 4 pixels to the 3 duplicates.
Use the eraser at 0% hardness and start erasing the egdes of the main render so it blends in more with the background ands adds more depth.
Merge the 3 blurred render layers
Use a C4D behind the layer with blurred renders and change the bending mode of the blurred renders layer until you get what you like
Its pretty hard to explain without having my photoshop up and being able to show screenshots, but if done correctly it will make the render blend with the background alot better.
Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
