Parametric editing vs pixel editing
1

I didn't want this post to get mixed up among all the ones in the other thread. Can someone explain the difference between Pixel editing and parametric editing. What would be the advantage of one over the other. In a pixel editor does the use of layers make it non destructive? Why would you want to have both a parametric editor and a pixel editor? Why have layers in a parametric editor if it is non destructive? Do layers make it more flexible or something?

I want to learn something here.
