[Maya] Baking animation clips in Time Editor removes translate values?

I'm currently working on my first mocap project, and it's probably not the first time something like this has not been planned properly. Long story short, I did mocap for a character that's way smaller than me, and we didn't do our due diligence with measurements.

So we have a character that has to move further than the mocap data that we have, and I have copied and pasted mocap data to make our character walk further than the mocap does.

Here's the problem: When I bake the animation clips where I nudge the character's root controller along, the root's translate values remain at 0,0,0! I don't like that, I want its real translation values back. I just find it janky and horrible to have a character root jumping around like that. I want to have the root in place, and have the character's CoG do the offset instead. How do I do that? I have Animbot, in which I have tried to copy/paste Xform world space but it doesn't seem like it works (I tried to parent the root to a locator so it would stay in place, but maybe it's the lack of translate values that does it).

I just want my translate/rotate values back.
