Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Rendering an isometric view, part of Cinematography in Maya.
…For design and architectural renderings, it's pretty…common that you'll want to create an isometric…view, and that's one in which the lines of the grid do not converge at infinity.…There's no vanishing point.…There's no sensation of distance, and things…becoming smaller as they go farther away.…In a isometric view, just as in an orthographic view, an object…remains the same size in the screen no matter where it is.…But the different with an isometric view is…that we can see in all three dimensions.…
And additionally, all three dimensions are measured equally in each direction.…So, if you have a cube, it will measure equally…on each side on the screen in an isometric view.…And to help us understand that, in fact I am going to create a cube.…Go to the Create menu, Polygon Primitives, Cube.…Draw that out,…and then go into its shape note and just set all…of its width, height, and depth equal to, let's say, 100.…Okay, so in a standard perspective projection…you get distortion, especially as you get closer.…
So if I go into wire frame mode with the 4…
