I have a silly question. I am working on creating a simple vertical shoot em up. I have a kinematicbody2D as a parent with an animatedSprite, animationPlayer and collisionPolygon2D as children. I want to make a collision map that also works on all the frames within the animation. Do I need to make a collision map for every seperate frame(if yes, how?) or can I just tweak my already existing collisionpolygon2d?

I personally just animated the collisionPolygon at the same time as the sprite itself. I hope there is a better way of handling it though. Not sure if adding the collision as a child of the sprite would work; since when animating the sprite the collision should move with it - but I have not tested this yet.

To add more animation properties (or whatever they are called);
After you have the animation window open (at the bottom) navigate to the collisionPolygon2D and click the + button at the right of the properties you wish to animate, in order to add it to a frame. That should add them to the animation window.

Create multiple CollisionPolygons2D,
Set "Is trigger" to true for unused (meant for other frames) polygons,
Add "Is trigger" keys from those polygons to your animation to turn them on/off.
