What does solidworks composer do?

I am very confused. I know very little about composer, I found it downloaded with solidworks, and just got time to start to figure out what it is. From what I understand it is for making manuals.


However it only allows you to save as  a jpeg or bitmap? The save as button is always greyed out. 


You must convert your solidworks files to .smg files before using it in composer.


I am not seeing anything that this software does that can not be done in solidworks better. So is there somewhere I could get these questions answered, I understand I must be missing something. Any help would be appreciated.


Please note I have seen the sales videos for the software and it did not really answer any questions. That is why I am writing this.
