I'm trying to watch my composition and a reference footage in parallel. in order to that, i double clicked the footage and undocked the panel which displays its video.

now the questions are two:

1. how do i make after effects to move a frame each time i press pagedown/pageup on BOTH videos (the composition and the footage video)
it doesn't work for me on each project.

2. on one project i have, it works somehow but there is an offset of more than 1 second between the current time indicator of the composition and the footage video. how do i make it display the same frame and be in sync?

attached is a screenshot, hope it makes my question clear:
Comp is showing 9:16 while the reference footage is showing 10:20 and this gap is constant while i'm moving forward/backward in time..

thanks, Lior
