Can LightWave produce softer ray traced shadows, or do you have to use shadow maps?

Only with area or linear lights as far as I know, but I could be wrong.

The spinning light trick is fantastic. Finally! :D This is going to really help me because I've been doing a lot of architectural stuff lately. Thanks again!
