The process of animation can be roughly split into 5 main stages:

1. Reference

Studying references to better understand motions you plan to animate

2. Drafting

Creating animation drafts by setting key poses

3. Spline

Creating smooth transitions between key poses by adding in-between frames

4. Physics

Making the animation physically accurate

5. Polishing

Fixing errors and improving the quality of animation
