[FFmpeg-user] Wrapping DNxHD in a MXF

I have a DNxHD essence that was transcoded from MPEG2 within FFMPEG. The video essence is RAW, it's not wrapped in any format. How can I wrap the video into an MXF? I have tried this command:

ffmpeg -i MPEGTStoDNXHD -vcodec copy -acodec copy DNxHD.MXF

I get the following error:

        [mxf @ 0x8441880] track 0: could not find essence container ul, codec not currently supported in container

If FFMPEG cant do it, does anyone know of a different way within Linux?
