A various of purposes. Two of them are a) that I think it would be
better to also provide a vector format to the Submitting Logo wiki
page and b) having the SVG logo in git repo (I don't care which,
ffmpeg or ffmpeg-web) is always good for SVG logo-finder.

Dammit. I think I'll just fix your "3D" version instead of redrawing
mine (the bitmap tracing in Inkscape is anything but good).

It's better than mine :P

Also, use a free software vector image editor (I can see that you are
using Adobe Illustrator).

No, I am not able to find out.

Seems like his website has not been updated since 2011.

Also, I found this: http://movieconverter-studio.com/home_en.htm ,
which is definitely made by THE Hervé Flores. And it points to contact
at movieconverter-studio.com .
