Presets and Templates Moods provides an assortment of Looks through templates in Final Cut Pro X and with the presets menu in Motion and After Effects. These predefined settings are proposed as starting points to quickly experiment with different "moods."
Ideally, the looks have to be applied to footage that is already color balanced and has well adjusted luminance ranges.
The presets are ordered by progressive amplitude variation of tonality.
If the contrast is too dark or too high on your footage with a particular preset, use the second wheel vertically (gamma) to remap the grey levels and the color. Then adjust the strength parameters in the effects window to increase or decrease the color shade.
