Particle Halftones + AE filters & scripts

Note: this post mentioned work by David Van Brink, Todd Kopriva's AE region of interest feature on him, as well as his free Omino After Effects Suite. Content was updated on PVC...


A halftone is an image or printing technique that "simulates continuous tone through the use of dots varying either in size, in shape or in spacing." In the Illustrator and Photoshop worlds, there's long lists of halftone filters, swatches, and compositing techniques used for printing and newsprint, comic, retro, and other effects. But the fun of After Effects is animation, and some techniques may not be immediately apparent without built-in filters.

There's something new and some things old in Halftone techniques for After Effects at Pro Video Coalition.
