UIColor+CrossFade

UIColor+CrossFade is a UIColor category adding a class method to return a UIColor created by cross fading between the two specified UIColor objects at the specified ratio (between 0.0 and 1.0).

Using UIColor+CrossFade:

Import UIColor+CrossFade.h, and use as follows:

UIColor colorA = [UIColor redColor]; UIColor colorB = [UIColor blueColor]; UIColor *crossFade = [UIColor colorForFadeBetweenFirstColor:colorA secondColor:colorB atRatio:0.5f]; // crossFade is purple

At a ratio of 0.0f, the result will be fully firstColor. At a ratio of 1.0f, the result will be fully secondColor.

Remember - you control the ratio and it doesn't have to be linear! ratio = powf((1 - value/valueNominal), 0.333f) is valid as well.

There is also a convenience method that returns an array of crossfaded increments between the specified firstColor and secondColor (thanks peyton!):

UIColor colorA = [UIColor redColor]; UIColor colorB = [UIColor blueColor]; NSUInteger steps = 5; NSArray *steppedColors = [UIColor colorsForFadeBetweenFirstColor:firstColor lastColor:lastColor inSteps:steps]; // steppedColors is an NSArray of 5 UIColor objects, crossfaded in steps between firstColor and secondColor

You can also use a version of the convenience function that allows you to define the curve the method uses when calculating your color steps as a block. For example:

NSArray *steppedColors = [UIColor colorsForFadeBetweenFirstColor:firstColor lastColor:lastColor withRatioEquation:^(float input) { return powf(input, 1/4.0f); } inSteps:steps];

See the included UIColorCrossFadeDemo project, which uses the extremely handy InfColorPicker, for further example usage.

If you use this in your app, I'd love to hear about it!
