Hello! I am new to using this program, and i have a problem which i can't solve by myself and tons of youtubers. I need to animate a regular rectangle, i want it to move to the left and its corners become rounded (at the same time). Who do I need to pray, what superpower potion to drink to make this animation? I would be very grateful if you could help me with it!

 

And one more thing - can i somehow copy all settings for width, height, position X and Y of one object and paste them to another object or the same object but in another keyframe? It would make all resizing work much easier.

1.  use a shape tween (or shape tweens) with shape hints.

2a.  covert the object (whose properties you want to transfer) to a symbol (if it's not already in the library)

2b.  covert the object (that you want to use to replace the object in 2a) to a symbol (if it's not already in the library).

2c.  copy the symbol instance from 2a > paste it in the frame you want > in the properties panel > use swap symbols* to replace symbol from 2a by the symbol from 2b.

Thank you very much for your help! I did everything as you said, but my rectangle is rounded like this - how to make the corners round exactly as in your example?

"can i somehow copy all settings for width, height, position X and Y of one object and paste them to another object or the same object but in another keyframe"

 

The closest thing to that is Ctrl-Shift-V: Paste in Place
