Are you trying to make it so you definently see all the dots up front, but get the picture if you are standing far away?
Sounds great. I won't disagree with you because I really don't know anything about process printing, just hearsay. I was under the impression that you used different angles though so you don't get Moire.Actually, I've heard the opposite. I participated in a class at the Long Beach ISS Show, and was shown 2 samples of process prints on darks. One had all the same angle, the other had different angles. There was no difference in the samples.
Traditionally, when I print halftones, I try to make it for a 156 mesh. So the SMALLEST dot I use is a 35lpi, MAYBE 45, but that would be pushing it. I always use a 61 degree angle, as this is one of the most optimum angles to set dots along the right angles of the mesh without them falling through. Think about it...when you look at a screen, what angle are the lines?
