Advanced documentation, pertaining to creating the "shield pose" animations for a character, which is a set of 8 animations + a separate rig used when the character is shielding, which when put together allow it to animate by tilting the analog stick around. This is newly supported with the editor, so there may still be some crashes or other issues.

Making this shield pose animations will probably not be necessary for most custom characters.

ALSO, there is a link interactive graph linked here which can be used to calculate the 8 positions for the shield itself. All of the original characters use this same formula, but the neutral position and radii vary. The highest/lowest radius values seen were 180/90.
