Area Light with Shape

I am fairly new to C4D. I have been trying to make an area light that emits light in a custom shape. I make the shape editable and put the area light as a child of the shape. And then under the light details mark the shape as object/spline and then drag the shape into the object line. I have seen several tutorials on this and followed them closely. I noticed that the built in shapes like square, disc, rectangle, etc. also do not work. No matter what shape is chosen the light remains the same. Do I have some setting wrong or is there something else I am missing. Thanks.
