        I don't totally understand what you are trying to achieve... we've
        had some issues with the env cube in Maya, looking like a big cube
        instead of a continuous background... so instead we use a spherical
        projection and a layered shader with 5 camera projections (just like
        you create a dome view from the 5 cameras). If you are creating
        circle images in AEF, you can "unstitch" the 4 lower camera images
        using glom, but there is no way I know to get the top camera this
        way. We usually just composite the background imagery (fulldome
        masters) created outside Maya... if you use the SGI format as output
        from Maya with an alpha channel, AEF imports the frames and just
        layers it over the bkg automatically... does this help in any way?
