Comment (by spookybathtub):

 R3D is an extremely complex codec, with dozens of raw processing
 parameters that need to be specified, and color science that is under
 heavy development by RED.  Also, REDline takes advantage of the Red Rocket
 hardware accelerator card for a huge speed benefit over CPU.

 The R3D SDK is kept up to date, and supports Red Rocket.  But if licensing
 prohibits that, then I suppose the alternative would be to write a decoder
 from scratch.  In that case, it seems unlikely that ffmpeg developers
 could keep up to date with the color science and perform the debayer and
 raw conversions accurately.  But maybe I'm wrong.
