Buffing is done with a rotary - polishing is done with a random orbital -

Its a lot of educating but basically the body shop mindset is quick shine and production work to get the fresh paint looking good so the car can stop taking up shop space - paint correcting and detail shop work is going to be similar yet different than body shop work -

If you are a newb don't start on a rotary, and all rotary work will require a follow up with a dual action polisher to remove the light marring and holograms you WILL inflict with a rotary.

Turn on YouTube and watch Larry Kosilla's videos for a start, (AMMO NYC), and then some other pros like Jason Rose, etc to educate on proper paint correction -
