In a nutshell...
Using a rotary buffer to create a swirl free finish after stripping any fillers off the paint and then viewing it in the brightest sunlight can be done by some people but more often than not it has more to do with the paint system and how polishable it is versus you, your skill level, your choice of pad and product. The best thing to do and what I do for all my personal detailing work is to follow any rotary work with an application of a cleaner/polish or a cleaner/wax using a dual action polisher. Better safe than sorry...
