This feature isn't available in the current Beta, but it will be soon. If you want to test it now, send me an email, and I'll send you a link to an Alpha that does include these changes.

OpticStudio 17 allows you to define more than 12 field points in sequential mode. This is especially helpful for freeform surface design. For more information, see this video:

Hello,
Mark Nicholson shows in the forum the possibility to have more than 12 points at the same time …
http://forum.zemax.com/6620/So-you-think-you-want-more-than-12-field-points?PageIndex=3
… The actual version seems to have only 12 fields, but selectable individual field “above” the 12.
Do you add later the capability to show more than 12 fields at the same time ?
Regards,
Jean-Francois

Hi Jean-Francois,
In the early Alphas with more fields, we did change some of the graphics to plot more than 12 field points. However, our customers indicated that their primary reason for needing more field points was for optimization and tolerancing. So that has been our first area of focus. If you do need to view more than 12 fields at a time in the analysis windows, could you reply here with which analysis windows you'd need, and the range of fields you'd like to see plotted together?
Thank you for testing the Betas for us!
-Kristen
