One very fast way to get that kind of sparse pixelated look is to use the CC Ball Action effect with the Grid Spacing and Ball Size set much lower than the defaults.

the grid effect will also work... small grid size, small border, enable invert and stencil alpha options

grid renders faster than ball action, which may make a difference if you are doing a lot of these or combining with other effects.
