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 Adobe After Effects, you can imitate that look for your video by simply dropping in your footage. If needed, you can customize the look with easy-to-use slider controls.

With multiple styles to choose from, it's perfect for newspaper and comic book animations, or any video needing some artistic or retro flare!

Turn your video footage into a halftone print animation!

Example of Halftone Animation Effect for After Effects
  • Multiple Styles - Choose from three unique halftone looks - dots, patterns (combination of black, white, dots, and stripes), or CMYK (grid of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, & Black dots)
  • 22 animated paper textures to choose from
  • Stop Motion Effect - An optional effect that lowers the frame rate and gives your animation a hand-crafted look
  • Custom Outline Effect - Draws dark lines along the contours in your footage

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 make their own adjustments. This template is compatible with version CS5 as well as all later versions of After Effects.
