How to import DNxHD MXF OP1a files from Adobe Premiere CC to DaVinci Resolve on Windows & Mac?

Resolve lite mac seems to be currently unable to recognize the DNxHD MXF OP1a files created by the brand new Adobe CC suite. I tried every flavor of DNxHD offered inside Adobe apps, none of them shows up inside Resolve. Wether they were created with Premiere Pro or Adobe Media Encoder doesn’t make a difference. The said files plays ok with MXF4Mac Player (with a gamma shift wich seems to come from the player). This was observed using Resolve 9.1.3 lite and 9.1.4 lite, Premiere Pro CC (7.0.0) and Adobe Media Encoder CC (7.0.0) on OSX 10.8.4
