The import actually does work. They changed how this is done from the older version where now it uses an actual import xml file instead. This is why I said contact me from the Email Support form and I would send you the xml file I created last week for someone else. However, you do have the option to request a refund from Envato for the LayerSlider, or perhaps an exchange for a different slider. If you are still wanting one that is a parallax style (the different layers), you might want to check out the Slider Revolution Responsive WordPress Plugin. You still have the option of using the Widgetkit one (which is free), although this is not a parallax style.
