You're probably very familiar with this format already, and I'm probably belaboring the point by even asking if it's in the works on your end, especially since the RED R3D SDK has been out for months on red.com and is royalty free.

I have never heard of this codec before. But no codec is too negligible 
for FFmpeg (type 'ffmpeg -formats' to corroborate this).

Can you direct us to samples?

Can you give a precise link to the SDK on their site? Does it have 
source or does it just specify how to link to their binaries? (Either 
one will provide valuable information.)
