Need help setting up Yeti 2.2.X for MtoA 2.0.2.1 & Arnold 5.0.1.3

Hi there,

Been desperately trying to render Yeti fur with Arnold but couldn't succeed.

Error: [mtoa.translator] pgYetiArnoldMaya: Arnold node type pgYetiArnold does not exist.

Is there a special way I should setup the ARNOLD_PLUGIN_PATH environment variable? I'm currently setting up all my env variables in Terminal and then launch maya from there. BTW, this method has worked for previous versions of yeti compatible with Arnold 4 so I assume this has in part to do with Arnold 5.

export MAYA_MODULE_PATH=/base/sw/peregrinelabs/Yeti-v2.2.0_Maya2017-darwin64:/base/sw/solidangle/mtoa_2017_2.0.2.1
export ARNOLD_PLUGIN_PATH=/base/sw/peregrinelabs/Yeti-v2.2.0_Maya2017-darwin64/bin:/base/sw/solidangle/mtoa_2017_2.0.2.1/shaders
export ARNOLD_PROC_PATH=/base/sw/peregrinelabs/Yeti-v2.2.0_Maya2017-darwin64/bin
export MTOA_EXTENSIONS_PATH=/base/sw/solidangle/mtoa_2017_2.0.2.1/extensions:/base/sw/peregrinelabs/Yeti-v2.2.0_Maya2017-darwin64/plug-ins
export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/Applications/Autodesk/maya2017/Maya.app/Contents/MacOS:/base/sw/solidangle/Arnold-5.0.1.3-darwin/bin:/base/sw/solidangle/mtoa_2017_2.0.2.1/bin:/base/sw/peregrinelabs/Yeti-v2.2.0_Maya2017-darwin64/bin
export PATH=/Applications/Autodesk/maya2017/Maya.app/Contents/bin:/base/sw/solidangle/Arnold-5.0.1.3-darwin/bin:/base/sw/solidangle/mtoa_2017_2.0.2.1/bin:/base/sw/peregrinelabs/Yeti-v2.2.0_Maya2017-darwin64/bin:${PATH}
/Applications/Autodesk/maya2017/Maya.app/Contents/MacOS/maya

Both my pgYeti and mtoa module files are empty except for the line pointing to the root installation directory of each. Same is true for maya.env file which is completely black.

Any thoughts on how to get these to work together is welcomed!

Thanks so much!
