In the future, it might be helpful for you and the editor to know that the frame rate converter is only useful in creating slomo effects when inserted into a 24 or 30p timeline.

It sounds like your editor used AE or some other means to try to slo down footage that already had an pull down in it, thus the stuttering.

When 60p material is FRC'ed to 24p timeline it is slowed down 2.5x or when into a 30p timeline 2x and the motion is very nice. This is why it's so important to coordinate production flow with post.

I tend to agree with Gary's assessment of your editor and refrained from saying the same thing in my previous post because I do tend to say these things in person, but try to be more civil on these forums.

As a cameraman who has been called many times with similar issues, I can tell you, it's always the editor at fault, and usually because he/she is afraid to ask the appropriate questions and then has to cover his ass.

I've had situations where camera people I know have lost accounts because the editor erroneously maintains to the end it was the camera person's mistake.
