I have this scene, which is autoloaded:
CanvasLayer (root with attached script)
- AnimationPlayer (Schrodinger's node)
- Control (presumably unrelated stuff)
but whether I reference AnimationPlayer in the script linked to CanvasLayer with
(which I think all refer to the same AnimationPlayer node as in the autoloaded scene?), I am getting "node not found: AnimationPlayer". It's treated like it exists in the IDE autofilling functions, etc. and worked before I changed the file structure (and also updated all location references I could find), but now it seems to refuse to acknowledge this node.
Why is it no longer working? How do I fix it? What embarrassing noob mistakes have I made with my structures?
