I am animating a 3D-ish graphic (you know, postcards in space?) that looks like a group of puzzle pieces.

A couple of pieces fly into place, and I have set them to Cast Shadows over the other pieces.

But... the shadow is looking solid black over the other pieces, and I want the shadow to have some transparency. How can I make it more transparent, and perhaps even feather it a bit?

Shadow properties are controlled by the light settings.
