Fade sprite after rotation

I am using the following shader to make my sprite fade out at the bottom:

shader_type canvas_item;

uniform float progress : hint_range(0,1); uniform float clip_height =

void fragment(){
    vec4 main_texture = texture(TEXTURE, UV);
    //main_texture.a *= 1.0 - step(1.0 - progress, UV.y); 	main_texture.a *= 1.0 - smoothstep(1.0 - progress - clip_height,1.0 - progress + clip_height, UV.y);
    COLOR = main_texture; }

Now when I add rotation, my fade effect gets rotated with it as the shader seems to be applied before the rotation:

How can I achieve that my rotated object has an even fade effect from bottom to top even when rotated, so it looks like this?

Thanks for your help!

Could you add the rotating node as a child of another, then only rotate the child and fade out the parent? I haven’t tested this, but I would think that the fade would use the un-rotated transform of the parent while the child happily rotated away!

I am also unsure, but this idea sounds promising

Tried this already with a node2D parent, but assigning the shader the it doesn’t fade anything.
