Here I need to make this character run forward in this corridor.

enter image description here

Following this path:

enter image description here

I've already done the run cycle but I can't find a way to make it move while running. I tried to slow down the fps rate and keyframing the character while it moves and other things but without succes. There is maybe an add-on or an internal blender's function?

I'll attach the .blend file in the way it cuold be usefoul for helping me. Thanks in advance!

I don't see any path for the character to run along so I'll include this link as to how to create a path and have avatars objects move along them. here

Instead of forcing the character to follow the path, place an empty there instead, have it follow the path, then parent your character to the empty, much as is done in this answer - here

This will give you more flexibility to steer the character's facing direction, rotation etc so it does as we do in real life, 'anticipate' the turns.

The running animation can run independently while the character is 'pulled' along the path by the Empty.

  • $\begingroup$ If you have't made a 'path' to follow before, it would pay to learn this using a simple cube in a fresh instance of Blender, get it working without the complications of an existing project getting in the way. :) $\endgroup$ – Edgel3D Feb 11 '17 at 12:28
