No problem! And yeah, I know a lot of these things are issues inherent in trying to mash two movies together that were written, filmed, and edited to be a single film each - we don’t have access to all the footage that was filmed, so our options for transitions and the like are limited. (I also wish there were clean opening sequences with no on-screen credits, but at least they both go up front.)
I think I might tinker with doing a version of this myself - if I do I’ll happily share with you any ideas or solutions I come up with for some of this stuff. (Not saying I’ll make a thread on or even publicly release my version, this just sounds like a fun puzzle to work on!)
I’ll definitely download your updated version, but I can’t promise I’ll have the time to sit down and watch it terribly soon.
