New GENERATION command enables control of ray splitting and scatter

Online PR News – 09-April-2021 – Bangalore, INDIA – For users performing stray light analysis of cameras or telescopes that have lenses, the new GENERATION command may reduce ray trace times by a factor of 10 to 100. GENERATION places an upper limit on combined ghost and scatter generations. This eliminates the tracing of unneeded child rays in optical systems where both ghosts and scatter are present. Additional features, include:
