spot light- how to get rid of the rings it creates

hey there,

I've been playing about with a spot light for the last hour or so. But I can't achieve a natural gradient of where the light is shone, what I'm left with, is a group of rings that fade in colour the closer to the centre they get.

To get a better understanding of what i'm trying to get at, please click the link below

I'd be very grateful if anyone has a solution to how I can achieve a more natural light effect.

stay animated

Add a small amount of noise (2% should work) to reduce the banding.

Additionally, Greyscale Gorilla just did an excellent tutorial -- both explaining the cause of "banding" and offering some good fixes/workarounds....
