- It removes all parenting from the layers.
But keeps the same animation, adding necessary keyframes on the layers for them to keep the exact same motion.

- It removes all non-renderable layers.
These layers can be: null layers, empty shape layers, adjustment layers without effects, guide layers (including Duik controllers, bones and pins) or layers with
