Hey all,
there is probably a really simple answer that im just completly missing here, but how do you get the shadow of a transparent object to appear less black? ive done a scene with alot of glass in but the shadows are all really black. Can anyone help?

Thanks

You can change the color of the shadow in the lights panel.

You can also try this old trick: Clone your shadow casting light, then turn off shadow casting for the clone. Then, in order to not have double the intensity of light hitting your scene, you need to spit the illumination between the two lights. For example, 60 percent intensity for the Key and 40 for the fill. Whenever you bring up the level of one light, you need to adjust the other so they equal 100%.
