Modifying via the graph editor

If you open the graph editor, you'll probably see something like this:

where the crenelated parts are the character translation along time.

You can select it and translate it along the Y axis of the editor windows GY:

Shifting the armature (or a parent of it)

You can also keyframe the armature (or a parent of it) position and set its curve to "constant". But this is a bit harder to adjust because curves scales and orientation are not necessarily the same.

Repeat with offset

You can also use a "cycles" modifier. Though, as there are probably many curves, you'll need to set it a lot of times. And practically, this may be painful.

  • $\begingroup$ thank so much for your help, i have one question remains , how do i parent an object to the pose position (not the armature ) $\endgroup$ Oct 15, 2020 at 8:55
  • $\begingroup$ Your other question? You can enter edit mode for the armature, select a bone that will be parent. Back in object mode, select the object and shift select the armature. Ctrl+P and choose "bone". $\endgroup$
