Don't see DPX listed as a supported codec.

You could always just try to import one and see what happens.

In compressor choose add image sequence .... same in motion. success will depend on the type of DPX sequence (big endian or not) if origin is from flame - smoke it now should work without glue tools.
I will run a test tonight and get back for conclusion of test.
