Only old files are "supported" but only raw Bayer data can be 
outputted, the used colour space was never supported afaict.
(Or are there B/W cameras?)
Version 3 of the files is supported, version 4 is not.

Your issue is not the encryption (if there is one), at least 
if there is software that can display the files on your 
system, but that FFmpeg does not support the colour space 
used by r3d cameras.

I am not saying anything would be particular difficult to 
implement just that it hasn't been done.
