CPAnimationSequence

CPAnimationSequence is a utility for chaining together series of animations in a simple, declarative fashion. Here’s an example from the project’s GitHub repository:


CPAnimationSequence* shakespeare = [CPAnimationSequence sequenceWithSteps:
    [CPAnimationStep for:0.2 animate:^{ self.romeo.alpha = 1.0; }],
    [CPAnimationStep for:0.2 animate:^{ self.julia.alpha = 1.0; }],
    [CPAnimationStep after:1.0 for:0.7 animate:^{
      CGPoint love = CGPointMake((self.romeo.center.x + self.julia.center.x)/2,
                                 (self.romeo.center.y + self.julia.center.y)/2);
      self.romeo.center = love;
      self.julia.center = love;
    }],
    [CPAnimationStep after:2.0 for:0.5 animate:^{ self.romeo.alpha = 0.0; self.julia.alpha = 0.0; }]
    nil];
[shakespeare run];
