so, spike told me how much he hates shimmeying for ages, here's the rescue.... for a bit, she's about 1.8 times faster than the original one. feel free to use it on your levels as long as i'm credited, it's done from scratch, TWICE (cos i retardedly don't know how to mirror an animation and still don't know how now), by me on 3ds max, but also thanks to mark for some crit :)
I really do like this annimation because at one point in one of my levels there was a really long shimmy spot, and I would get imcredibally bored waiting for her to get around the corner, but now it seems like a reasonable amount of time with this new annimation. I would've a 9 for originallity, just because I thought it looked a lot like legend's but you did make it from scratch, so I bumped it up to a 10! quality is a 10 because it's smooth and fluid and goes along with the other shimmy animations usuablity 10! It's probably the one of annimations that everyone would want in their game. Custom Ann. 10 becuase you did make it from scratch and it looks fantastic!

This definitely has to be one of the most useful animations that I have seen in a long time, and not only that, it's also of a very high quality in general. Originality: This appears to be the first 'faster shimmy' animation that I have come across, and due to it being a completely new animation altogether I can't give this any less than 10. Quality: There were no problems with the use of the animation itself, and it flows well between the other linking animations such as the 'shimmy around corner' move. Usability: It's one of Lara's main moves, and as such can be used absolutely anywhere. Custom animations: The animation is wonderfully smooth and realistic, and there are no changes that I would want to make to it. This is a wonderful animation, and definitely one worth using.

This Animations are briljant. Origanal: I've never see other fast shimmey. Quality: The animation is excellent. It's next gen for me! Useable: Nearly everyone use this animation. Perfect work! I'm going to use it in my game (Ancient Eye).

Originality: it's an original idea, I haven't seen other faster shimmey animations. Quality: Very smooth and no bugs. Useability: It's very useful and much better than the original shimmey animations. Custom animations: One word: perfect! I'm using the animation in every level I'm making, it breaks the boredom of shimmeying and very useful. Great work!

I love it when people make animations that are not only good-looking, but useful as well. This one is the perfect example. The original shimmy animation is just plain boring, even when you don't need to shimmy long ways... Original: 10. I never seen any shimmying animations...correct me if I'm wrong. Quality: 10. Like I said, it's very useful and beautiful. I found the anims to make Lara feel somewhat lighter... almost weightless. That only shows what a talented animator you are! Great job! Useable: 10. It is useful and useable in all levels. Custom animations: 10. What else to say? :p
