This week we take a look at how to make an isometric projection by either faking an isometric camera in After Effects, or using the SSR—Scale, Shear or Skew, and Rotate—method.

We also rig up a cubic object so that we can control it with sliders. You can use this to build anything cubic, like buildings. And I forgot to mention it during the tutorial, but if you duplicate the sides and make them smaller, you can combine them with a repeater to get windows!

For more information about the math involved, check out this Tuts+ Illustrator tutorial (https://design.tutsplus.com/tutorials/how-to-create-advanced-isometric-illustrations-using-the-ssr-method–vector-1058) and be sure to read the comments as well. And you might also find our Tutorial 87: Angular Controls (http://workbench.tv/tutorials/2017-09-08_AngularControls/) to be helpful when moving things along the isometric grid.
