I'm pretty inexperienced with the volume grid. But I thought I'd got the hang of it. Unfortunately looking at the render from last night I'm seeing the volume element 'container' seems to be causing a shadow where it shouldn't. (more obvious in the video)
Can anyone help me work out what I've done wrong, or a work around?

I think have solved it.
The VDB object was intersecting the table which seems to cause the 'shadow' on the surface.

An important thing in reports like this (actually, most reports, if not all) is to mention which version of the host software and which version of Corona was being used.

Fair point. I'll remember to add those details to my future questions. Thanks!
