The rendering is due to a mis-match and this may only be a small detail.
Right click the Sequemce icon in the Browser and select Item Properties.
Do the same for a converted clip.
Do the Item Properties match exactly?
Post screen shots or all the details if you cannot resolve the issue.

You did not say exactly which "Apple Intermediate Codec" easy setup you are using in FCE. There are 8 of them. Pick the wrong one and you will have problems.
My guess is you shot HD (1920x1080i60) in your 5D. If that's the case:
- In MPEG Streamclip you need to make sure that the frame size is selected as 1920x1080.
- In FCE you need to select the AVCHD-Apple Intermediate Codec 1920x1080i60 easy setup. Then create a new sequence. You must create a new sequence for the easy setup properties to be applied. Then import your converted video clips & put them in the new sequence.

Hi - thanks for the response.
I got it working - you were right - a small detail that was causing the whole issue. As it turned out, the "Item Properties" in both browser and clip were matching up (which is part of what was so confusing, i.e. in theory everything should be good) ... but on some more investigation I found that for whatever reason, FCE doesn't like to play nice with the frame size of the 5D files.
Sooo ... when converting in MPEG Streamclip I changed frame rate to 1440 x 1080. Before I was working with 1920 x 1080. Kept my "Easy Setup" at AIC Format. Use: HDC AIC 1920 x 1080 i60. No red rendering lines.

As Martin points out, there are a selection of AIC codecs.
Only one will be exactly right then yopur edit world is sweet.
