Scenes are active instances of a stage. By design, exactly one scene is active at a time. The active scene is managed by GameScene, which is responsible for generating and unloading stages and changing to another scene.
In practice, scene changes are essentially warps that trigger loading screens. They can be explicitly triggered with three different actions: ChangeScene, FromCDungeonToMainField and ToCDungeon.
All three actions are very similar; in fact they share the same base class. However, the first one is the most flexible action since the other two can only be used for shrines.
Scene changes can also be triggered from AIDef:Action/AreaRoot.

Demo005_1 is used as the event flow for most warps, for example when fast travelling to shrines, towers, Travel Medallion and Divine Beasts.
ClearRemains is used when completing a Divine Beast. The main difference between
ClearRemains is the warp effect (sound and visual).
Starting event flows
An event flow can be scheduled to start immediately after a scene change is completed, right before control is yielded to the player. For the scene change actions mentioned above, the parameters
EntryPointName can be used to specify a custom event flow.
That same system is also used for game-initiated scene changes (e.g. reloading a save or going to the title screen). In such cases, GameScene automatically determines which event flow and entry point to use during GameScene#Stage generation step 11-5b.
