Well, that’s impressive. Animating an Isometric based world

Reflecting on Design #18

I have a soft heart for Isometric designs.  Mike Winkelmann, a graphic designer from Appleton, Wisconsin, animated this amazing Isometric video.  What is especially interesting to me is how he successfully moves the camera around the central focal point and yet never loses the isometric layout of the house in the center of the screen.

If you’ve ever done any isometric work you know how the layout is based on parallel grid, that don’t converge.
