Summary

Eevee currently allows on 256 volume samples which can lead to severe banding issues even with optimized start and end for the volume frustum.

Increasing volumetric_samples fixes those issues.

Demo and file in this twitter thread: https://twitter.com/StefanPWinc/status/1154973548508778496

Another example of banding issues: https://twitter.com/brentpatterson/status/1154042824045678593

The shadow samples are also increased in this patch because I noticed that increasing them changes the look of the clouds, thus the currently limit is too small as well...

Event Timeline

This is probably fine if it doesn't e.g. cause driver timeouts if this value goes too high. Will leave this to @Clément Foucault (fclem) to judge, but he has time off this week so might be a bit until he looks at this.
