YouTube videos are no substitute for basic optics knowledge. Please "drive" Zemax with caution. 

I am no substitute for Zemax Technical Support. If you are stuck please consult:
      1.  Zemax manual
      2. Zemax's Knowledge base
      3. Consult the videos below
If these resources do not answer your questions and you have a current Zemax license, contact their technical support. Again I am a poor substitute for the Zemax experts.
