Kdenlive uses ffmpeg through the MLT framework. So in order to make Kdenlive work with FFMBC, you would have to compile MLT against FFMBC. This is probably theoretically possible. But I've never heard of anyone doing it. There would probably be some gochas along the day.

Kdenlive currently supports DNxHD through MLT+FFMPEG/LIBAV today. You can download a render profile from here:
Or you can create your own in the render dialog.
