I am trying to make a shape made from the blob tool made into hafltones. I do not want it as a gradient, just equal sized halftones throughout the shape. Is this possible?
When I do it using Effects/pixilate/color haltone it makes multiple colored halftones, whereas I just want one color. And when I change the channel's it comes up with similar results. Does anybody know how to do this?
Thanks for you help!
With pattern, I am simply making a pattern of the object I want to fill in.
Where is pattern fill? I cannot seem to find it. I feel like I am going about this the wrong way.
And I downloaded a script for circles and it is close to what I want it to be. Still isn't close to a halftone effect, unfortuneatly.

Filling a shape with uniformly spaced, same-size halftone dots would not really be a halftone; it would be a tint screen...which is the same thing as a pattern fill of circles.
The Phantasm plug-in makes true vector halftones. It's pretty cool:
Thanks for all of your guys' help!
What I ultimately did was make a pattern of a circles and spaced them out to my liking, and made a pattern of them to the shape of my object.
Thanks again for your inquiries!
It took me a lot of looking to finally figure this out. Very frustrating as it seems like it should be much easier. First you make your shape and fill it with black. Then set it to whatever percentage tint you want (ie 50%, 80%, whatever.) Rasterize the object, then go Effect>Pixellate>Color Halftone. Here you will need to experiment with Max Radius to determine the dot size desired and screen angles. Once the effect is applied you should have a black and white dot pattern. Now you can live trace it and change the black to whatever color you want. Hope this helps!
