What is the difference between Sequence Evaluator and Sequence Player

In Lyra Beginner’s Kit, I first saw this node. I tried replacing it with a sequence player.But the animation performance effect is no different.

Sadly evaluators and players don’t really have any official documentation beyond API.

I am currently working on an unofficial documentation for a lot of animnodes though, so maybe this helps:

You need to be within a Sequence Evaluator to call nodes like “Distance Match To Target” or “Set Explicit Time”
If anyone is getting the following errors:
DistanceMatchToTarget called on an invalid context or with an invalid type
SetExplicitTime called on an invalid context or with an invalid type
Doublecheck its a Sequence Evaluator.
