DescriptionNews and updates

Vectoraster is a graphics design app for creating custom vector halftones or animated raster effects based on imported images or dynamic elements like gradients, text or noise fields.

The halftone patterns and point shapes can be changed and varied across the pattern to produce many different styles. The resulting effect is always shown, with the preview updating in real time as you change parameters. The result can then easily be exported as vectors to EPS or PDF files, as images to JPEG, PNG or TIFF, or simply copied and pasted into most graphics software.

With Vectoraster 8 you can now also animate all these effects to create transitions, video backgrounds or other effects to use in your motion design projects. The result can be exported either as MOV or MPEG4 video files or a sequence of frame pdf or image files.


There is a collection of projects that could work as inspiration for what you could use Vectoraster for here on Behance:

Inspiration on Behance


  • Many different point shape types, including circles, polygons, font characters and imported custom vector shapes or images.
  • Detailed control of how you want point shape, transformation and color to vary over the raster.
  • Base how the raster points vary on source images, gradients, text or noise fields you define live in Vectoraster.
  • Advanced line raster mode with lines of varying width instead of points.
  • Many different halftone raster patterns with detailed control of how the points are placed.
  • Easily rotate and offset the halftone pattern, and add multiple distortions like randomization, waves and twists.
  • Vary the strength of pattern distortions using sources for dynamic effects.
  • Animate raster point, pattern or source properties using a keyframe-based timeline interface.
  • Copy raster output and paste it straight into most graphics software.
  • File export to PDF or EPS for vector output, and JPEG, PNG and TIFF for bitmap.
  • Export point data (location and size) to a CSV file for further CAD or other processing.
  • Animation export to Quicktime MOV, MPEG4 or a sequence of image frame files.
