The plot properties to use for representing the individual surfaces or images in the animation can be loaded with the Load button. In order to save plot properties to a file, double-click a file in the list to create a 2D surface or image plot. Modify the plot properties using the calculation options to create the desired representation. Right click the 2D plot and choose the Properties | Save menu item.
