bpy.colors: blue-pink-yellow color scheme, which also prints well on...

Description Usage Arguments Value Note Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

Create a vector of ‘n’ “contiguous” colors.

Usage

1
 bpy.colors(n = 100, cutoff.tails = 0.1, alpha = 1.0) 

Arguments

n

number of colors (>= 1) to be in the palette

cutoff.tails

tail fraction to be cut off on each side. If 0, this palette runs from black to white; by cutting off the tails, it runs from blue to yellow, which looks nicer.

alpha

numeric; alpha transparency, 0 is fully transparent, 1 is opaque.

Value

A character vector, ‘cv’, of color names. This can be used either to create a user-defined color palette for subsequent graphics by ‘palette(cv)’, a ‘col=’ specification in graphics functions or in ‘par’.

Note

This color map prints well on black-and-white printers.
