UXCAST–Making Isometric Workflows inside Expression Blend–Part 1


I did it! and I feel exposed. I sat down tonight and put together my first of what may or may not be many (depending on how badly I get crit) screencasts around UI / UX + Microsoft Technology.

In this video, I show folks how one can take a workflow design concept and inject it into your canvas of choice but in an Isometric format. I like Isometrics simply because you can get more of a spatial view than most screen angles that and it derives from my old Pixel-art days so..yeah..Isometrics are the way!

Hope you enjoy, and feedback welcomed.



RIGANEIC - UXCAST - Isometrics in Expression Blend from Scott Barnes on Vimeo.

In this screencast I show how one can take a Isometric workflow map and transpose it into Expression Blend 4.

    Errrm ; “This video has been removed because it is too long” Scott. I guess you have to divide it into 15 minute parts .

    Awesome. Loved the screencast.

    For some reason there is a lag between you typing and the screen updating but it is not too bad. I quite like the style and pace. Looking forward to the next one.

    Very nice

    Small remark though: the drop shadow of the bubble is painted over the green triangle so you might need to rearrange the stuff a bit
