[vtkusers] Adding a renderer vs setting its render window

What is the difference between




? Is it just two different ways of doing the same thing?

Also, the docs for SetRenderWindow [1] says

"This is automatically set when the renderer is created by MakeRenderer.
The user probably shouldn't ever need to call this method."

But I couldn't find any info in the docs about a MakeRenderer. Digging in
the VTK source, it seems there's a vtkParallelRenderManager::MakeRenderer.
Is that the one the docs refers to? Could someone clarify this note in the
docs? Why shouldn't I need to call SetRenderWindow?
