cutout animation in top down view 2d

Hi I am trying to make a cutout animation in top down view game but every tutorial is about side view games. I need to change sprites of character objects during the animation not after it.

You will have to use Sprite sheets. Here is a tutorial: HOW TO MAKE SPRITE SHEETS FOR YOUR UNITY GAME - TUTORIAL - YouTube

Of course, you could save the state of the animation, stop it, change the shape and then load the state of the animation. You would have to time all of this and would probably decrease performance a little bit, but if you don’t have the time for Sprite sheets, use this.
