    Volumetric shadow maps-help??

    I am currently working on a project that requires some volumetric lighting, however I seem to always get banding across the image when I use shadow maps opposed to raytrace. BUT from what I can see of the shadow map option gives a better result if I could get rid of the banding. Any suggestions?

    always use shadowmap with spotlight .... i doubt you will get the resoults with raytrace shadows for what you want...
    I dont know what you mean by bending...but you should make some tests with cone angle , cone base and height. Try different setup on a basic scene something simple but in same dimiesions as you scene here.
