yup its basically same method. However, using rotary to buff it down will introduce round swirl marks.
The method in this post is aimed at the ppl who do not have access to the buffing machine.
Even when you have rotary buffing machine, its always better to use wet sanding prior to buff. Same principal in automotive detailing where you wet sand down the car and u use buffer to buff out the sanding marks.
