Gradients are commonly used to smoothly shade the interiors of shapes. A blend pattern is defined by two arrays (Factors and Positions) that each contain the same number of elements. Each element of the Positions array represents a proportion of the distance along the gradient line. Each element of the Factors array represents the proportion of the starting and ending colors in the gradient blend at the position along the gradient line represented by the corresponding element in the Positions array.

For example, if corresponding elements of the Positions and Factors arrays are 0.2 and 0.3, respectively, for a linear gradient from blue to red along a 100-pixel line, the color 20 pixels along that line (20 percent of the distance) consists of 30 percent blue and 70 percent red.
