Smile Fading Textures

I would like to fade a texture in, and then out, like a splash - I did it a while ago but cannot remember how. Doesn't have something to do with animation?

Please advise.

I added the Lua below for reference, I am really unsure how to get this to fade in/out. (edit)

Lua Code:
  1. local addonName, addonData = ...
  3. local InstallerLogo = CreateFrame("Frame", addonName.."ILogo", UIParent);
  4. InstallerLogo.texture = InstallerLogo:CreateTexture(nil, "HIGH");
  5. InstallerLogo.texture:SetTexture("Interface\\Addons\\PawsUI\\Art\\Splash.tga");
  6. InstallerLogo.texture:SetAllPoints();
  7. InstallerLogo:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD");
  8. InstallerLogo:SetScript("OnEvent", function(self,event,...)
  9.     self:SetSize(850, 480);
  10.     self:SetPoint("CENTER");
  11. end)
  12. InstallerLogo:SetMovable(true)
  13. InstallerLogo:EnableMouse(true)
  14. InstallerLogo:RegisterForDrag("LeftButton")
  15. InstallerLogo:SetScript("OnDragStart", InstallerLogo.StartMoving)
  16. InstallerLogo:SetScript("OnDragStop", InstallerLogo.StopMovingOrSizing)
  17. -----------------------------------------------------
  18. InstallerLogo.animation = InstallerLogo:CreateAnimationGroup()
  20. local a1 = InstallerLogo.animation:CreateAnimation("Alpha")
  21. a1:SetFromAlpha(0)
  22. a1:SetDuration(1)
  23. a1:SetToAlpha(1)
  24. InstallerLogo.animation:SetToFinalAlpha(true)

This makes the Logo not visible but does not fade. Perhaps it does fade but is immediate?
