DPX files exported from Blender cannot be imported to some other programs. While it works in DaVinci Resolve, it fails in AfterEffects and Premiere 2014.

It would be a simple fix, which I have attached below.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Export DPX from Blender, try to import to AfterEffects CC. You'll get an error message that the header is wrong.
