What Scott mentions in the first paragraph is most likely your problem. 
  You shouldn't run into the problem of a movie not being flattened 
using SnpazPro.

You most likely compressed with a codec that isn't part of the standard 
QuickTime installation (the TechSmith Ensharpen codec for example).  
After recording your movie in SnapzPro the dialog box that comes up 
will tell you what compressor you are saving the movie with.
