Use these functions to create actions.
Most actions implement specific predefined animations that are done for you by SpriteKit. If your animation needs fall outside of the suite provided here, then you should:

Most actions allow you to change a node’s properties and some actions specifically apply to specific nodes, like
SKSprite's actions for animating its color or texture.
Here are the most common animated properties:
Changing a node’s
sizeor scaling properties
Changing a node’s visibility or making it translucent
Changing a sprite node’s contents so that it animates through a series of textures
Colorizing a sprite node
Removing a node from the node tree
Calling a block
Invoking a selector on an object
See Action Initializers for a full list of action types.
Actions can be chained together in multiple ways:
A sequence action has multiple child actions. Each action in the sequence begins after the previous action ends.
A group action has multiple child actions. All actions stored in the group begin executing at the same time.
A repeating action stores a single child action. When the child action completes, it is restarted.
To delay a subsequent action in the chain, insert a
wait action in the sequence, and remember that groups, sequences, and repeating actions may be nested.
