Sequencer and root motion

Hey folks,

so I am struggling with getting root motion work while playing the animation through sequencer.
In the animation itself, root motion is enabled and it works fine but as soon as I play the animation in sequencer, it won’t work anymore and the capsule of the character won’t move at all.
The character is a posessable which I later posess via blueprint if that is even relevant at all.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
