attachNewNode() vs. reparentTo()

I was reading this post, (which has to do with attaching spotlight to a node but its not that important), and it got me thinking:

:confused: What is the difference between attachNewNode() and reparentTo()?
Can anybody explain this to me?

With reparenTo, you already have a nodepath that is somewhere in the scene graph. You simply change its parent.
With attachNewNode, you usually donโ€™t have a NodePath yet, but a normal PandaNode. (Or LODNode, or anyotherNode, etc.). You place it using this command into the scene graph and the function returns the new NodePath.

Correct me if Iโ€™m wrong.

So basically they have the same final effect? :confused:
