For help and discussion about specific video editing systems like Adobe software, Windows Movie Maker, Magix, Sony Vegas, etc. Please note the subforums.
I've been playing around with animating some drawings of mine and was looking at some anime for reference with animation.
I use Media Player Classic and I usually hold "ctrl" and press the right arrow key to scrub through footage. It doesn't always seem to be that accurate and when I want to go backward it jumps quite a few frames and gets stuck a lot. Granted this is compressed footage usually. When I encode it with utvideo it performs a lot better.
I was just curious though if there was a better, or easier way to view footage frame by frame forward and backward.

Just put your video in Vegas (or pretty much every editing program you have), open wide the preview screen, and then step by step, frame by frame, analyze your timeline (don't forget to zoom it a bit)

Vegas is what I use for scrubbing/trimming when I edit. If you're interested in clipping or watching footage outside of a project, I can not recommend anything more highly than VirtualDub (NOT VirtualDubMod).

Aside from Premiere, Vegas, Magix... if you use VirtualDub for clipping I also suggest mapping the backward/forward functions to D/F on your keyboard so that you can step back and forth comfortably with your left hand, while leaving your right hand free for your mouse. You can also scrub back/forward with the mouse wheel for fine tuning.

The period key in mplayer and IIRC media player classic moves to the next frame. Otherwise open it in some editor like vdub.
