Is there a difference between the create object action and the spawn action?

Spawn object creates a new object at the same position and with the same angle as the old object.

'Spawn' can create multiple instances if multiple instances of the object the action is used on met the event's conditions; 'Create' only ever creates one instance.

One thing for sure, I have a sprite with more frames, if I create a new sprite, and change the frame, the new sprite has now a different frame to the last sprite,if I use spawn, and change the frame of the new sprite,also the old sprite changes its frame ...
So the System is creating an instance of type Sprite , while the Sprite itself is spawning another one ...
