Why not use Edge Crease instead of adding Edge Loops to control the Subsurf Division?

I rarely see it used.

Great video by the way

    Hey, good question! Both are ways to control the apparent sharpness of edges, but adding edge loops looks much more accurate up close. For far away or small objects, edge crease works well and also reduces the polycount substantially.
