'Before Experiment' vs 'Begin Experiment'

Hello! In the Psychopy 2020.2 release, the builder code component introduces a new tab called ‘Before Experiment’. What are the difference between ‘Before Experiment’ and ‘Begin Experiment’?

Many thanks.

Hi Josh,

We still need to update the docs on this I think, but basically Before Experiment runs before anything else - including the window being created. Begin Experiment runs at the beginning of the experiment, so after the window is made but before any routines have begun.
