Halftone Dots breaks a layer into a grid of dots of differing sizes to create a two-tone image. It can be applied to any type of visual layer, including video, but works best when there are multiple colors and lot contrast on screen.


Halftone Dots has the following settings:

Amount is proportional to the number of dots on screen. The higher the value of Amount, the more dots are present, and the more definition is retained from the original layer.

Strength affects the sizes of the dots in the effect. Higher values of Strength cause smaller dots, while lower values cause larger dots. Depending on the color of the dots or the background, this can also affect lightness or amount of detail visible in the preview. 

Angle changes the angle of the grid. Changing this can create the appearance of interference or feedback patterns within the grid.

Phase shifts alternating rows of dots in the grid. When the values of Amount are low, using this can drastically change how the original layer is rendered.

Color 1 sets the color of the dots.

Color 2 sets the color of the background.
