I'm using a scene to act as a scene changer, but in its script, it's unable to find it's child nodes.

My structure is like so:


The two lines of code i use are

onready var animation_player = get_node("AnimationPlayer")
onready var black = get_node("Control/blackRect")

Without fail, they result in a get_node: "node not found" error. This doesnt crash the program, but when I try to call them later, the null pointer does.
I have tried:

in Engine by (12 points)

Is this an autoload? Did you autoload the scene or just the script? If you autoload the script, it has no child nodes, so this situation will occur.

Yes, it is an autoload, and I was loading the script not the scene..... I should've seen that. Thanks for the help, much appreciated!!
