Default Crisco from a Bottle Vs from a Can

Does anyone know if, in the initial seasoning process, using Crisco from a bottle vs a can makes any difference?

The can is shortening whereas the bottle is an oil.
I would think the smoke point and purity would be the main differences.
The shortening is the way I do all my pans.

Any references to Crisco both here and by other CI collecting and restoration resources are to the solid shortening. Doesn't mean that brand of vegetable oil cannot be used, but with perhaps different expectations.

Iím new at this and since I have a bottle of Crisco on the shelf I was just wondering if it would produce the same results. Maybe Iíll give it a try someday but for now Iíll go with a proven winner. After all ... if it ainít broke donít fix it. Thanks for your advice.
