Because there are a lot of questions related to the image file format used by VirtualMirror here is a short answer…
At least a *.jpg of the frontal view of the eyeglasses is needed. This *.jpg should have a clean white background.
at least needed
Overlay, transparency, size, scaling, rotation, positioning will be computed by VirtualMirror itself.
Optionally VirtualMirror can use the Collada file format. This requires a web cam in any case. Both of the formats can be used together. VirtualMirror will try to enable the video mode if a Collada file (*.dae) was passed. Detailed information about Collada can be found at the following site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COLLADA
Last week I have updated bennewitz.com and I was able to fix a long time bug of Magento. The problem appears when I change the language from German to English. The names of the catergories are different – that’s why I receive an 404 error. There was no translation of the category name, based by the category ID.
This is a very nasty error.
Looking into the code I found that I had removed the “?___from_store=xx”output in past for better SEO: Inside of /app/design/frontend/base/default/template/page/switch/languages.phtml “getCurrentUrl()” was set to “getCurrentUrl(false)”.
This was a bad idea because this avoids the translation of the category name. However setting this back to default the language switcher doesn’t work as expected. Even the category name is translated the store code is still missed.
In result I had to look some deeper inside the php… for Magento 188.8.131.52 I have found this fix:
Starting from line 251 I have replaced the default assignment to $targetUrl
…this is my basic hardware / software setup for the current software development machine at present.
It’s not the latest available, however the Thinkpad is functional and fast as usual including a perfect working finger print reader (AuthenTec AES2550/AES2810) used to login into the Gnome Display Manager (gdm).
I have replaced the optical DVD drive inside of the Ultrabay by a classical magnetic hard disk: 320 GB Western Digital, Scorpio Black, running at 7200rpm, spinned down using hdparm -Y /dev/sd* most of the time.
I love the silence of the ssd drive because it is much better to listen – for example to this: Johannes Brahms wrote it for Clara Schumann
Since last week I was able to find a way to embed VirtualMirror into Shopify. I have “learned” Liquid for this… While the backend of VirtualMirror has to be run on an external server VirtualMirror itself can be called from cdn.shopify.com including the images to load.
However, I’ll prefer the “hard” way: A root server, running Linux + Magento.
