To really get started to video production, PS is obviously not enough. When PS has a certain foundation, you can learn editing software such as premiere. There are many video editing software, which are basic and easy to learn. These are relatively easy to use, as well as the existing basic special effect templates.

Then learn another 3D software! 3D or Maya are optional objects, but Xiaobian personally recommends C4d. Literally, it is a 4D film. Using it as a model and map can confuse the false with the real. In recent years, the momentum is very strong. It should be said that it is a little simpler than Maya.
After mastering these software, you can basically be among the great gods. Of course, mastering it is not an overnight thing, but also needs to be practiced repeatedly.

Some pictures have poor texture before they are processed. This is what some people often say that there is no sense of film. If you understand color matching, this problem may be improved. Leonardo da Vinci is definitely the best choice for color matching software.
