Gimbal Killer vs Unroll Rotations

Hi, I was wondering where's exactly the difference between the gimbal killer filter and unroll rotations? For which problem with gimbal locks do you use what? Autodesk didn't really provide a good explanation. Could you please bring light in the dark?

Thank you very much

Unroll has 2 parameters to set, where Gimbal Killer has nothing.

Also Gimbal Killer, but I might be wrong here, adds keyframes between full frames. I don`t know if Unroll does that.

One of them might also be a legacy filter, like Motion Blend tab after the Story tab appeared. Who knows

Thanks for your reply! There's still one point i don't get. The unroll rotations filter has the quality option. You activate this by selecting path, otherwise only the Y Axis will be unrolled, right? But how exactly works the quality fied/in which way does this affect the curves? Didn't find a explantion for that, autodesk just writes "it manipulates" the curves...... Thanks
