Halftone Effects gives your footage and photos the look of an animated halftone print. In the early days of printing, the "Halftone" printing process produced images through the use of large dots and patterns. With the Halftone Effects template for After Effects, you can imitate that look for your video, and customize it with easy-to-use slider controls.

It's perfect for newspaper and comic book animations, or any video needing some artistic or retro flare!

Halftone Animation Effect
  • Three unique, custom halftone looks:
    • Dots
    • Patterns (combination of black, white, dots, and stripes)
    • CMYK (grid of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, & Black dots)
  • 22 animated paper textures to choose from
  • Optional Stop Motion Effect
  • Custom Outline Effect draws dark lines around the objects in your footage
  • Animated borders frame your animation like a comic book
  • Customize the size, shape and spacing of dots. Adjust detail level, color, and more using convenient slider controls.

The Halftone Effects template is not a plugin. It's an Adobe After Effects project file, commonly known as a "template" because the work is already done and the user needs only to insert their footage and make their own adjustments. This template is compatible with version CS5 as well as all later versions of After Effects.

Because the Halftone Effects template contains copyrighted intellectual property, the sharing or online posting of project files with or for anyone other than a client is prohibited. See the Terms and Conditions for more details.
