Bifrost error no bifrostTranslator

I'm getting this error.

# Error: Bifrost to Arnold package not installed in C:/Program Files/Autodesk/bifrost/1.5.0/Arnold-5.2.0.0/bin #
# Error: [mtoa.translator] bifrostTranslator: Arnold node type bifrost_implicit does not exist. #

I've install Maya update 5, and Arnold 5.2.1.0 and it gave me Arnold-5.0.0.0/bin not Arnold-5.2.0.0/bin. Do I need to make an environment variable? Or do an install of just Bifrost to Arnold procedural?

Yeah, that seemed to work. But now I have these errors

# Warning: foamShape1.radius_channel: use type STRING, not INT #
# Warning: foamShape1: could not set INT parameter "radius_channel" #
# Warning: liquidShape1.smooth_iterations: use type INT, not UINT #
# Warning: liquidShape1: could not set UINT parameter "smooth_iterations" #

And it's all Bifrost default settings

Those are warnings and I'm not sure that they are a problem.

MtoA includes the Bifrost procedural. You shouldn't have to do anything.

But, you can set BIFROST_ARNOLD_PATH

For example:

set BIFROST_ARNOLD_PATH=C:\solidangle\mtoadeploy\2018\extensions\bifrost\1.5.0
