    I have created a static method creating and returning an animation that I use in various places in my application. I think this may be causing a leak. If I autorelease theAnimation in the return statement I get a crash because I the animation must be being release before it's complete.
    Is this indeed causing a leak? If so, is there another way to do this without a leak?

    +(CABasicAnimation *)fadeIn {

    CABasicAnimation *theAnimation;
    theAnimation = [CABasicAnimation animationWithKeyPath:mad:"opacity"];
    theAnimation.fromValue = [NSNumber numberWithFloat:0];
    theAnimation.toValue = [NSNumber numberWithFloat:1.0];
    theAnimation.duration = 1.0;
    return theAnimation;

    then I us it like this:

    CABasicAnimation *anim = [AnimationCreatorUtil fadeIn];
    anim.delegate = self;
    [[scoreHolderView layer] addAnimation:anim forKey:mad:"fadeIn"];
