Hi,

Is there any type of software or plugin that you can choose for your project that will give you the Fight Club Look or the Se7en Look and many other looks that I can just choose, play with the settings and get one that I like?

Thanks in Advance

There is no software that will instantly give you a specific color graded look. These looks are a result of set design, costuming, lighting, and color correction (grading).

There are, however, plenty of LUTs (color look-up tables) that will give you a stylistic look evocative of a given film, style, film stock, and so on. Generally these look great on demo clips and may or may not look right on your particular footage. That's where understanding color correction and knowing how to tweak the shot accordingly comes in. If you do a Google search for "LUTs" you'll find a ton of options - both paid and free.

To use these within FCPX, you'll need to get a plug-in like Color Grading Central's LUT Utility or ColorFinale. There are also a number of freely available FCPX color board presets that might achieve a similar style or at least a similar starting point.

Magic Bullet from Red Giant is probably the plugin with presets that borrow the most from existing film looks. Other than that, just grab a still from whichever movie you want as reference and use something like Color Finale or Resolve to dial it in.

A significant part of this is how your footage is shot, macro focus, etc. Build some glitch effects in motion where you double your footage and mask it, then do extreme fast directional blurs with exposure flashes, and other weird things like that.

Seven and Fight Club we around the peak of the photochemical bleach bypass look . This look was a combination of high contrast, desaturated colors with some blown highlights .

Magic Bullet likely has a preset tht gets you right there or you can roll your own, it's not that hard with a visual reference at hand.

Maybe something from the mLUT packs at motionvfx? https://www.motionvfx.com/mplugs-68.html

They even have a setting called "fight gang."

I don't have it so can't vouch for it. But I have quite a few of their plugs and never a disappointment.
