I know it's not used at all, but if I put a light from Arnold's area and render it in Maya Software the program fails and ejects me.

The most curious thing is that I did it in two other computers of friends and it does not happen. Can you think of the reason? Thanks!!!

No, I can't think of a reason. I wasn't able to reproduce the crash using Maya 2018 Update 3, MtoA 3.0.1, and Windows 7.

You can use both types of lights . However, the Ai Area Light also has Cylinder, Disk and Quad options.
