The SDK is obviously not even a remote option as of the suffocating
distribution licensing.

The rest falls under reverse engineering which, in addition to being
prohibited legally as per their camera EULAs, would also be subject to a
firmware change at the source that could potentially destroy all effort.

There are a plethora of good reasons that the vast bulk of visual effects
pipelines work off of EXR which are far too numerous to list here. R3Dcode
would fail on many fronts even if it were not encumbered by restrictive
licensing and lack of specification.

If I were to wager, the official software will be used to generate the
offline proxies and then again to pull the EXRs for online.

Just a hunch. ;)

With respect,
