I'd like to be able to edit the start/end in light incidence so that I could set negative values and cover the whole shadow transition. It would also be nice to be able to edit incidence angle start/end.

As it is right now I think you could set up a light parented to another and point it the opposite direction. They would always be pointed opposite directions and you would use 2 gradients so that they would meet in the middle of the shadow transition.

Oh and Fprime doesn't seem to work with incidence angle and targeting even after the 8.3 update.

A couple images playing with the lights pointing in the opposite direction technique. Kind of simulates SSS. Would be easier to just be able to go below 0 in the incidence angle and light incidence gradients. It still needs a little work.

[edit] course the spheres on the left are default shading.
