I downloaded RNASeq bam files from TCGA data portal. I am interested in the expression analysis at isofrom level and wondering how to translate these bam files into counts at each isoform. I have done some analysis at gene level using star or htseq-count but fresh to isoform analysis. Could somebody have me some suggestions. I knew there are softwares such as rMATs for alternative splicing (AS) analysis but what I wanted are the counts for each isoform rather than the AS analysis.

You would want to carefully check how multi-mappers were handled if you are starting with BAM files and considering isoforms.

There is an example (case study) in the edgeR user's guide. Chapter 4.5. They use featureCounts first instead of htseq.

Try sailfish They are not the exact counts but would work for many purposes.
