Two-dimensional Fourier transform kinoforms can be calculated by use of a discrete Fourier transform. It is well known that the off-axis reconstruction has lower reconstruction error than the on-axis one. Here we make what to our knowledge is a new analysis on the effect of phase quantization in the Fourier domain. We find that the kinoform reconstruction error changes periodically according to the position of the desired image when a large dummy area is added. The error dependence of quantized kinoform reconstruction is simulated on the position of the desired image by use of the iterative dummy area method and the iterative interlacing technique.
