First, I've seen issues with renders in a corrupt sequence. Try creating a new sequence with the correct settings and copying and pasting the contents of your problem sequence.
Do you have access to After Effects. I've been told that the tools in after effects are much better. You might also try keying in Motion.
If you want to send me a very short clip, I'll see if I have the same problem.

What are you keying with? Third party plugins? or FCP built in ones?
If 3rd party...are they licensed? Sometimes that's how plugins watermark the footage they are used on.

I shot in 1080 24p FX and I set the sequence to 24 fps and I was getting the vertical lines, flicker and lag in the image with any quick moments. So I created a new sequence and placed a test clip on the timeline and FCP asked if I wanted match my clip to the sequnce and I said no. I applied the color smoothing 4:2:2 and chroma key filters and played the clip and it was fine but still with the vertical lines. I then removed the color smothing 4:2:2 filter and no vertical lines. Still might send you a short clip just for kicks.
Yes I have After Effects and Motion and I will give them a try when I finish this project.

Yes I am keying the FCP built in keyer, no third party plugins. It seems the color smoothing filter is a problem with the footage from this camera.

1080 24p footage is 23.98 fps, not 24fps. Film is 24fps. It is often helpful to let FCP7 match the sequence settings to get best results.

When FCP asked if I wanted to match the sequence setting to the clip setting I said no and the glitches in the video disappeared. Deleted the color smoothing filter got rid of the vertical lines. Strange!
