Does RR support USB3 cameras?

I see that USB3 and GigE cameras share a GenICam interface, so I suppose USB3 is nothing like a USB webcam? Or is it?

That depends on the camera manufacturer. When you say "webcam" you are talking either about a WFV or DirectX access into the camera from a PC. You can provide these with USB3.0 too and make things look like a webcamera. In fact, you can do that with any protocol if you want. Many GeniCams or GigE cameras also come with a DirectX access that allow them to be used in apps that expect 'webcams'.
