How does the extension work?
Easily create a magazine by choosing a template, adding pages and selecting a category for it. Multiload feature and highly customizable book settings will help to quickly create visually attractive books fast, which will satisfy any taste. After creating a book its thumbnail will be displayed among product images. The magazine pops up or opens on a separate page, where you can flip over the pages, download attached PDF files, listen to sounds and watch videos.
Highly customizable book settings

Video can also be added to a page but only by itself, without any images or text. It’s up to you to decide whether to iInclude video files or YouTube / Vimeo links.
Organize book categories
Feel free to define main topics of your books and create categories accordingly. This way you’ll be able to sort books and quickly find them on the grid. You can also add a brief description to each category.
Choose the magazine resolution
Correct content display is a mandatory point in product presentation. This is why we added resolution details feature. You can create any book resolution you want, so it will give you a chance to create highly customizable book appearance.
Upload images in bulk for fast book creation. There are 2 options: you can upload a file directly or you can use a directory for this purpose. If you choose the second option you’ll be able to delete the source file from a directory after upload. After uploading a file, choose general title for the pages and the book is created.
Making Flash Flipping Book from PDF
Attach PDFs which will be available for download from the book itself. The extension doesn't convert PDF files to .jpg or other graphical formats. So you need to make images from PDF and then use them to create a book. Also it is not possible to insert a PDF as one of book pages.

so it takes time and also you should prepare all the images and stuff, but eventually the flipping book looks very good and loads fast. we use this module to showcase the new arrivals with a photoshoot. we tested the pages and the ones with the flipping book had a slightly better conversion than those with just uploaded pics.
I suggest making better user guides so we could read it and set the extension up without support assistance
