Installing prehung doors - before or after resurfacing if walls?


My prehung doors came in and they are currently sitting in the garage. I plan to have popcorn ceiling removed and the walls will be floated to be smooth since the current texture is a really rough orange peel. Curious if I should install the prehung doors before or after this texturing work? I've heard after drywall work in the case of new drywall, but this is modification to existing drywall.

After.

Then put up your casing to finish.
