aiToon Example, stylized highlights doesn't match image

I've recently downloaded the aiToon example from the learning arnold page here:

https://docs.arnoldrenderer.com/display/A5AFMUG/Learning+Scenes
and noticed that the stylized highlights does not appear to match the rollover image.

Instead of the windowed squares in the image, I have a standard circle as if it can't see the texture, however I've checked to make sure that the texture file was downloaded correctly and is linked and everything appears good.

Is there something other than download, open in maya and render that I'm supposed to do?

I've checked this with Maya 2019 and 2019.1 with arnold 5.2.2.0 and 5.3.0.1 (fresh install today with the 2019.1 update)

Thanks

directionalLightShape1 wasn't added to the Stylized Highlight lights field.

It should work now. Thanks for the feedback.

Thanks Lee! Works like a charm

Incidentally also answered some more questions i was trying to solve: why dragging and dropping from the outliner wasn't working.


The stylized highlights "Lights" field only takes shortname for light shapes, cannot resolve short name conflicts (neither light receives the image, but both appear as circles) and the field does not support long name (outliner drag and drop result).

Also adding the same light into the field twice (directionalLightShape1;directionLightShape1) doubles the contribution

Cheers
