Press "Pg Up" or "Pg Dn".

you'll get better quality by using the bezier mask tool, i prefer to use rotobezier, then you keyframe the mask shape, it will interpolate over time so you dont have to do every single frame

thats for matting only though, if you're trying to create some kind of waking life/scanner look, then use photoshop cs2 or illustrator, cs2 now has animation tools if you import the quicktime through imageready, THAT HOWEVER is frame by frame
