I haven't had a chance to replicate this, but have you looked at the file attributes as potentially causing the issue. See this post from last year: https://lists.libav.org/pipermail/ffmpeg-user/2011-February/029027.html. Once the kMDItemFSCreatorCode and kMDItemFSTypeCode were explicitly set with SetFile on a Mac then Final Cut became more friendly at handling an ffmpeg output.
