T-Pan for Capture One is a Black and White style pack inspired by black and white film. The look is aiming to re-create the experience of shooting with a professional grade black and white film stock, and creates a rich film like monochrome image.
T-PAN also comes with a set of tools, which consists of a number of different types of grain, and some additional set of styles for creating a “soft” look, to emulate the analog softness and texture of film.

Some General Note about Styles
Not all images are suitable for all styles. Some images just won’t produce pleasing results and won’t be appropriate for the looks you may be trying to use, depending on the subject matter.
It is also important to note that any style won’t be a magic bullet. One should consider the use of these styles as a starting point. More often than not, images may require additional adjustments after applying presets. Sometimes you will need to adjust exposure or brightness and contrast depending on your photo. When trying T-PAN, consider making a clone of the variant that you’re working on, so that you don’t lose any adjustments you’ve already made.
