Just thought I may as well post this, as I'm finalising a t-shirt design destined for screen print. Initially I was gonna use VectorStylers new Halftone Repeater feature which is great but still in it's early stages so had a few hiccups, so in the end all design was done in Affinity Pub (studioLink) with the exception of the the distorted text which was done in VectorStyler. I came up with this halftone workaround a while ago while messing around with the early betas of pub that had the data merge layout function added, it's really easy and involves a symbol which is repeated 8x8 then placed inside a data merge layout container sized to accommodate then repeated as much as needed and pasted inside the vector containers that need the halftone, for me this works a little better (at the moment) than VS repeater method but quite similar in principle. Once in place the symbol can then be resized to simulate the density of the halftone which can easily be done with the arrow keys in the transform panel - I'm not really any good at all this tutorial stuff, but it may be able to help someone? The finished PDF/X-1a 2003 file should then be output to film with the Red 032 separation and the black separation output negative which will be the opaque white ink base which is designed to be printed on a black T-shirt This technique also works as a cheat for any kind of repeating pattern: 2143350893_ScreenGrab2022-01-20at09_47_08.mov
