See: glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_SEAMLESS); As far as your actual shadow quality, the entire benefit of VSM and ESM techniques comes from the special form that the visibility test takes. You probably want to introduce a constant factor for over- or under-darkening the shadows, so that the edge isn'...
You can send all the data in you want as a texture.

There's no reason you can't do the same thing without compute shaders but the problem is that you will have much less pleasing performance. Which makes it kind ...
