Avisynth logo license info (can I air it?)

Hi there,
as you probably should be aware by now, we're based on Avisynth for pretty much everything and almost every encoding that we do goes through Avisynth and x264/x265/ffmpeg etc via an automatization called FFASTrans.
We also encode files manually by manually writing scripts to clean up some parts of a video or to perform just the right kind of 16bit debanding or to write masks ourselves ad hoc to get rid of some things only etc.
We've been doing it for years and we kinda want to include Avisynth in one of our publishing papers and videos to show that we use it on a daily basis, especially for our Remastering operations starting from old films and tapes. So far we've quoted it only, but our graphic department would like to include the logo (like the AVID logo you see at the end of some movies etc).
So far I've found three logos:



the old classic one:



and the "new" Avisynth+ logo:



Is there any other official logo?
What's the license behind it? Is it the same as Avisynth+?
Can we use them and eventually include them in other logo/modify them?
We're trying to do something good here by making Avisynth a recognized solution for professional use in studios as it can achieve way better and most customizable results than any other professional frameserver/transcoder and by stating that we use it many so far sceptic studios will probably think "if such a big studio based its workflow on it, it must be really good".
So... what can we do with the logos?

Thank you in advance,
Frank

if you can do same thing with x264 and others then why not for Avisynth? I don't think it will Violate GPL if you just put the logo with others logos

Logos can come under different licences than the programs they are for. A few years ago Debian rebranded Firefox as "Iceweasel" because the terms of use for both the name and logo were more restrictive than those for the source code.
