Car looks great.

I may sound dumb asking this, but is opticoat for keeping the car free of imperfections and the clear film for the prevention of rock chips?

Almost hit the nail on the head. Opticoat will not prevent you from getting swirls and other scratches but its a very strong sealant. You got the clear film part right
