3D footage to Avid MC5

Hi I just started with Media Composer 5.

I make a lot of CG footage with Maya and I used to work with EXR image sequences to maintain uncompressed video while editing. But it looks like Avid does not support the EXR 32 bit format.

Is it possible to import 16 bit TIFF image sequences in Media Composer 5?

Does anyone have experience working with CG footage in Avid, what does your workflow look like (I also work a lot with alpha channels)? Is there a way to import 32 bit formats in MC5?

Any tip would help, thank you!
