Been playing with the new 3D effects on the Illustrator 2022. Is there a way to adjust the shadow transparency of the object? As it is now, it's way too dark, which works sometimes. But would it be possible to make it a little subtle?

This looks like you need to turn on raytracing in the 3D effect panel.

Hi, maybe there is a way, but what I do, I use the appearance panel with two 3D effects applied 

for the top fill I don't use shadow and for the other fill I use shadow and I reduce the opacity

I don't understand why this is the correct answer.
Turning on Ray Tracing does not allow you to control the transparency of the shadow.
There is no setting in the ray tracing dialogue that allows you to do that and, for me, ray tracing simply burs the shadow but does not fade it at all.
