alshaders is not longer being developed.

In most contexts, there is an Arnold menu, and those are the Arnold nodes.

Inside an Arnold Shader Network, all the nodes are Arnold nodes (afaik).

Those are warnings, not errors. You'll get those for curves and points, and often it's not a problem.

Do i get ALshaders when i buy arnold or..? I get confused what nodes are arnold nodes.
As i understand nodes that have stripes on them (ball shape pn left side of node icon).

I also get this error:

00:00:06 2065MB WARNING | [htoa.node.node] [soho] Parameter not found: radius (ar_radius) 00:00:21 2150MB WARNING | [htoa.node.node] [soho] Parameter not found: radius (ar_radius) 00:00:22 2186MB WARNING | [htoa.node.node] [soho] Parameter not found: radius (ar_radius)

I hope you can assist me with it.

There's no shader applied, so a default Utility shader is applied. The Utility shader doesn't use lights.

And for the lights: the intensity of your lights was too low. Don't use negative numbers for intensity or exposure. For the quad, try 1 and 8 to get started.

Can you post an Arnold log or a scene file?

It sounds like you're using an IPR in debug mode, but it's hard to say without more info.
