This video explains in detail how and why scratch lines in the first coat of plaster, whether wavy or horizontal, with a Scratcher or Scarifier, makes little difference. https://youtu.be/XqN3IA9iD3w/
One fact does indeed make a difference. The scratch line should never be vertical.
This horizontal scratching provides what we call the plastering industry a key to creating a natural mechanical bond between the scratch coat and the brown coat, or what is referred to as the second coat of stucco. Scratch lines.
Most folks spreading over cementitious substrates such as bricks, stones, concrete, or even concrete blocks, also known as CMU blocks, need only ONE COAT applied to a skim coat, thus not necessarily scratching the stucco surface.
