  Oh, I didn't notice. Thank you very much for forwarding the comments!

  That would be good. It would probably also be nice if we could get a more neutral
rendered version of the zigzag (no blue-ish illumination and big resolution) and/or
even the model so it could even be re-rendered to new needs.

  Also IMHO the zigzag and the FFmpeg text are good assets to provide for the
artists it should be explained that it is totally OK to replace the zigzag or
the text with your own version if it doesn't overall hurt recognizability to much.

  Unfortunately I am too very short on time these days. Though I will consider
helping out if I find the time.
