Default z depth is driving me nuts


I'm playing a bit with zdepth and compositing at the moment. I was quite happy to see that Mr renders out a separate depth pass. However, that file is always an .iff or an rla. The problem is the rly sequence is empty -black even the channels. And the iff sequence cannot be opened by any application. After effects takes the iff containing the actual image, but when I try to import the z iff it says that it is an unrecognized file format. -Photoshop can't do it, Shake can't, but what's getting me is that fcheck can't either... The only app that can is this thing called imf_disp that comes with maya, but that one can only save single images -no sequences :angery:

So if there's anyone with a solution that would be amazing.
