Forgive me and educate me if there is already something similar to this that I'm unaware of.. But I'd love to be able to exclude objects from the sun at an adjustable amount. Say I just wanted to exclude 80% of the light from the sun on a single object. This would be amazing!

It's not a perfect workaround (cue: shadows), but you could use two suns. One main sun that "excludes" the specific object and a second sun that only includes this specific object and shines with 20% of the main sun's intensity.

This was indeed a good solution for my issue! Thanks again
