Linking (assigning) Orbitvu presentations to Magento products

In order to link the Orbitvu presentation to Magento product, please login to your Magento's back office and go to the "Catalog -> Products".

On products list there is a new column "Orbitvu SELF HOSTED". It defines whether the Magento product has a linked (assigned) Orbitvu presentation or not.

 Go to the product edition simply by clicking "Edit" on a chosen product.

When you scroll down, there is a new tab "ORBITVU SELF HOSTED" on product edit page which contains the list of the uploaded Orbitvu presentations.

Simply click the "Link" button on the chosen Orbitvu presentation and it will be assigned to the current product.

After succesfully linking the Orbitvu presentation, you can see all the items as per below:

They also automatically appear on frontend product page.

Changing Orbitvu presentation items order

If you want to change the order of the Orbitvu presentation items, simply click on "Move item" icon ((on a chosen item)) and use "drag and drop".

Deactivating Orbitvu presentation items

You may also deactivate chosen Orbitvu presentation items, so they are not visible in frontend product page. To do this, click on the "Deactivate icon".

Copying Orbitvu images to the native "Images" tab.

The Orbitvu plugin allows to easily copy Orbitvu 2D image (or one frame from Orbitvu 360 presentation) to the native Magento images. This feature is helpful because sometimes third party plugins can "see" only native Magento images (like ebay plugin). Additionaly, if we want to avoid "no image" on frontend products list page, it's always good to have at least one image in native images tab.

Below screens show empty native "Images" tab and "no image" effect on frontend products list.

To avoid the issue described above, please click "Copy to original images" or "Copy one frame to original images" on the chosen item in ORBITVU SELF HOSTED tab. When the operation is finished and you refresh the page, the image will immediately appear in the "native images" section.

We also get rid of the "no image" effect in frontend product list.

If the copied Orbitvu item was a 2D image, it will be automatically deactivated to avoid duplicates on frontend product page.
