Metafile SDK Perpetual License


Do your customers want to open and edit PDF files in your application? The Metafile SDK is for developers who need to open, import or edit PDF or PostScript as WMF or EMF in a service or application. For example, by converting PDF to WMF, a file would be generated which could be opened and edited, in a Windows application such as Visio, at the object and text level. Metafile SDK is simple to hook into your application and gives you immediate access to a powerful conversion engine which generates accurate vector WMF and EMF from PostScript and PDF input.

Purchase the Metafile SDK below or request an evaluation version. Consider SDK Advantage Support with your license purchase to receive all updates, upgrades and technical support. Developer assistance is available, if required, through the Priority Engineering Program.

Import/Edit PDF and PostScript with Metafile SDK

With Metafile SDK, software developers can generate either Windows Metafiles (WMF) and Enhanced Metafiles (EMF) from PDF and PostScript files. With just two calls to the engine and some fine-tuning conversion parameters using an .ini file, you’ll be testing your integration on the same day. WMF is the native vector graphics format for Windows and many formats support it or are extensions off of it (Visio .vsd, PowerPoint .ppt, Word, etc).

Input formats include PDF, EPS, AI and PostScript. The Metafile SDK can be extended to output additional industry-standard vector and bitmap graphics file formats, equally well, with speed and precision.

Available for both 32- and 64-bit Microsoft Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

Keep it Simple

It takes a lot of time and effort to develop excellent vector conversions. Images are a lot easier. We’ve done the hard work for you. Why dedicate engineering resources to generating new vector format support from scratch when you could just plug into the Metafile SDK component and be able to open and edit PDF files in your application within hours? It’s no wonder we have so many OEM customers who have trusted us for 25 years. Try it or contact us today to discuss your requirements for a Metafile SDK.
