You will need to enter in your purchase code that you get from code canyon, this allows you to get the premium templates created by the slider revolution plugin. In addition, you can get support from their website with the code that you get.
These are the general settings for the revolution slider. First select the default slider. This is the basic standard settings for the slider revolution. You than need to enter a slider name and alias. This creates a short code for your website where you can enter it in later on your wordpress website. Just make a page and insert it later.

There are tons of options you can set here, one of the coolest things about the slider revolution plugin is the object library. You can now use the images within the slider revolution to create your slider. So here you can set the backround image, set a background color, or a backround video. These are the basic options and foundation to create your slider on your wordpress website,
In the options, you can select in image and select different animation for your slider. Here i show you most of the options and show how you can time the images to curve in on your wordpress website. There are different options, offset which allows you to set the direction of the image, the opacity which allows you to set the transparency of the image, the rotation which can set a certain spin on the image. To get a better understanding of some of these options, you should do a trial and error kind of phase to help you pick the right kind of animation for your slider.
In the slider revolution options tab, ( in the general settings of the slider) you can set the transitions for each slider.
