Not delayed with the current release schedule. We want to make themes that push limits, and that doesn't happen if we stick to a preset deadline each month. We have yet to fail to release a theme every month.
IN FACT... if you count Helium, which is a new FREE theme we released a week or two ago, we got two themes this month.
Interested in this template. Can you explain how the video is handled so that speed and filesize is not an issue?
So here's the deal with video. You can use whatever video size you want. For our RocketLauncher, we went with a very basic 1280x720p video encoded with a relatively low bitrate. This made the file size small. Looping makes a short clip appear a lot longer.
Nothing in the theme is influencing the size or speed of the video file. We recommend just running your video through a compressor that keeps the file size low without hurting quality too much. Short clips make a difference, as well.
