Hey guys,
I recently was trying some things out for a project. And wanted to create a halftone vector halftone_thumb.jpg
something like this.In Adobe illustrator but All i can manage to create was a rasterized halftone.
With the applying the color halftone effect in pixalated under effects in adobe illustrator.
Now does anyone know to create vector halftone in adobe illustrator?

There is a stand alone program called Vecoraster and you could download a free trial of it.

It's really good as it gives you perfect halftones and not the blobby image trace in Ai.

The trial version puts a kind of watermark on the halftone and saves out as a PDF but you can easily delete that if you open it up in Illustrator.

If it's just for shading then you should be able to download some halftone patterns and use the pathfinder to clip them out.
If you struggle to find any, I have a set that I used in this vid and I can pass them on to you.
