Huygens PSF/MTF - Coherent across configs

Can you describe exactly how CWGT and WLWT are utilized when executing a coherent Huygens MTF/PSF addition across multiple Configurations (by selecting "All") for a particular wavelength?  What exactly is scaled during the calculations for (1) PSF and (2) MTF ?  Thanks,

Wavelength, configuration and field weights effectively change the relative intensity of the weighted parameters. So wavelength weight is like a spectral intensity. Does that help?

Remember that when doing wavefront-based calculations polychromatically, the reference wavelength ('one wave') is always at the primary wavelength.
