Magic 360 works with VirtueMart product attributes out of the box.
Each product may have "child" products each with different images.
When your customers select a child product, the gallery updates to reveal specific images.
Whether you choose radio, dropdown menu or swatch thumbnails - product attributes is a perfect way to show customers your product range.

Muhammad Farooqi, macarbon.com 1. Thanks for reporting typing error in component code for VirtueMart 1.x. This has now been fixed.
"coreClass->enabled(count($images)" should be
plugins/system/vmmagic360.php on line no. 585.
After this change every thing worked great.
2nd issue what i faced was, if there is no 3D animation like 360 with multiple rows, than file name must be in string+number.jpg You can't give names like: smaller version - shoe-360-01.jpg, shoe-360-02.jpg, shoe-360-03.jpg. and zoomed version: shoe-800-01.jpg, shoe-800-02.jpg, shoe-800-03.jpg, You will get error.
you have to give them names like. smaller version - shoe-small-01.jpg, shoe-small-02.jpg, shoe-small-03.jpg. and zoomed version - shoe-big-01.jpg, shoe-big-02.jpg, shoe-big-03.jpg
these numeric names starts becoming like - shoe-000-01, shoe-001-01 etc.
Other than that, it's easy, good and no limit where ever you want you can put any 360 images. Please improve above errors, There are many chances that I'm the only with these errors. Thank you
2. All spin images should be uploaded as standard product images. Upload the large version of your 360 degree images for spin, zoom & full-screen effects. Please visit here for our guide on how to name images.

Other VirtueMart components
To create a 360 degree spin on your VirtueMart website, you need a set of 360 photographs of your products. Each set of photos should be shot on a turntable, with each shot equally spaced, e.g. 18 or 36 photos per rotation. They can be one row, multiple rows (for a 3D effect) or one row and one column (for a Martini effect, like the blue running shoe). If you need photos, tell us what your products are and we will get quotations for professional 360 product photography for you.
