If you mean going from cutting to finishing polish stages then just a MF would be fine, just make sure it's soft and not likely to marr the surface, rub it on a cd to test if need be, once the panels are ready for the last step product (sealant or wax) then give a wipe down with Isopropanol to remove any oils.

Hi i tryed DA ing for the first time and i used my new MACallister from b and q and a combo of lime prime and menz yellow pad, i first did it on my dads renault van then on my audi A3 which is lava grey. when finished polishing and buffed off after a few minutes a kind of haze forms that messes with the light a bit like marring. what caused this as my combo isnt the most abrasive!

thanks christian

Sounds like buffer trails or holograms, can be caused by not working the polish for long enough, try priming up the pad first by rubbing the LP well into the pad, then take a slow approach and try not to take the speed up above 1500rpm then work thoroughly until clear, due to the slight abrasive nature of LP it sounds like it hasn't been fully broken down.
I've had issues before using LP by rotary on certain paints, if the above doesn't work then a different/dedicated finishing polish may be required.

What pads and compound do you have, you might have soft paint which will make it harder to remove the hollow grams. Is your paint jet black non metallic??
