Since we’ve been on a thread with recent posts discussing exotic halftone processing using space filling curves as halftone screens, I thought it would be instructional to put together a much simpler traditional line screen color halftone effect. This post will show you how to build this simple MSG effect, and might provide some additional insight into the more exotic processing used in the examples shown over the past few posts.
The image below shows the MSG Advanced Editor processor chain used to build the simple line screen effect shown above.
PLEASE NOTE THERE ARE A LOT OF HALF TONING PRESETS IN THE FOLLOWING MODES
PAINT SYNTHESIZER > AUTO PAINT > LINE SCREEN – HALF TONES – BLOCK PRINTS
IMAGE OPERATIONS > LINE SCREEN
VECTORIZER > LINE SCREENS
PASEQ > FLAT – CARTOON – LINE SCREENS
