    rip ????

    is there a program out there that lets me use specific size dot patterns based on the tone of the picture.....

    have like a 30% pantone fill at 30 lpi
    and a 40% fill at 65 lpi

    manually controlled

    this would only work for monochrome pictures.

    if you have to print multiple colors with different screen angles onto each other you cant have varying lpi.

    i guess there is no rip which only handles 1-colored jobs.

    that :( just means that I would have to print the same velum a couple of times to get the desired effects

    Accurip

    I'm a little unclear on your needs but accurip does decrease dot size and density based upon the percentages. You have no manual control of this however. The other option would be to use http://www.astutegraphics.com/products/phantasm/. This is a plugin for illustrator that helps to create halftones in your actual artwork instead of your rip software. Then you would just output at 100%

    Hope this helps.
