In the dopesheet I

  • press a twice to deselect everything
  • push b to lasso select
  • select some keyframes from an object
  • push ctrl-c to copy
  • push ctrl-v to paste

But Blender pastes keyframes that weren't even highlighted! See the screenshot gif below. How do I prevent this pelase?

Selected channels

As the tooltip suggests, when you paste from the buffer, the keyframes are pasted into the selected channels.

If no channel is selected, the keyframes are pasted into all the editable channels.

In my opinion, this is the easiest way.

You can duplicate the keyframes (Shift + D) and move them by entering the number of frames or by moving the mouse.

Include only selected objects

Alternatively, you can include only the channels related to the selected object. enter image description here


Protect channels

You can protect the other channels from editing:

  1. Select the channel
  2. Press Tab (locked / unlocked) enter image description here
