Aspose.Total for .NET is a powerful package of File Format Automation APIs that can be used to easily convert PostScript (PS) files to OpenDocument Presentation (ODP) format. This process can be completed in two simple steps.
The first step is to use the PDF Processing API, Aspose.PDF for .NET, to transform the PS file format to PowerPoint Presentation (PPTX). This API provides a range of features that allow you to manipulate PDF documents, including the ability to convert PDF files to other formats.
The second step is to use the Presentation Processing API, Aspose.Slides for .NET, to convert the PPTX file to ODP. This API provides a range of features that allow you to manipulate presentation documents, including the ability to convert presentation files to other formats.
By using Aspose.Total for .NET, you can quickly and easily convert PS files to ODP format. This package of File Format Automation APIs provides a range of features that allow you to manipulate documents, including the ability to convert files to other formats. With just two simple steps, you can easily Render PS to ODP.
.NET API to Convert PS to ODP
Get Started with .NET File Format APIs
Install from command line as
nuget install Aspose.Total or via Package Manager Console of Visual Studio with
Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .
Document document = new Document("input.ps"); // save PS as a PPTX document.Save("PptxOutput.pptx", SaveFormat.Pptx); // load PPTX with an instance of Presentation Presentation presentation = new Presentation("PptxOutput.pptx"); // call save method while passing SaveFormat.Odp presentation.Save("output.odp", SaveFormat.Odp);
Get XMP Metadata from PS File via .NET
While converting PS to ODP, you might need extra XMP metadata information to prioritize your batch conversion process. For example you can get and sort your conversion documents based on creation date and process the documents accordingly. Aspose.PDF for .NET allows you to access a PS file’s XMP metadata. To get a PS file’s metadata, you can create a Document object and open the input PS file. After that, you can get the file’s metadata using the Metadata property.
Document doc = new Document("input.ps"); // get PS XMP properties Console.WriteLine(doc.Metadata["xmp:CreateDate"]); Console.WriteLine(doc.Metadata["xmp:Nickname"]); Console.WriteLine(doc.Metadata["xmp:CustomProperty"]);
Create Read Only ODP File via .NET
By using Aspose.Slides for .NET API, you can further enhance the features of your conversion application. One of the feature can be to create your output file read only to increase security. The API allows you to set your ODP file to Read-Only, which means users (after they open the presentation) see the Read-Only recommendation.
Presentation presentation = new Presentation("PptxOutput.pptx"); // make ODP read only presentation.ProtectionManager.ReadOnlyRecommended = true; // call save method while passing SaveFormat.Odp presentation.Save("output.odp", SaveFormat.Odp);

What is PS File Format?
The PS (PostScript) file format is a page description language developed by Adobe Systems. It is commonly used for printing and is supported by a wide range of printers and imaging devices. PS files contain instructions that describe how elements such as text, images, and graphics should be rendered on a printed page.
PS files are created by applications that generate PostScript output, such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, or other graphics software. They are primarily used in professional printing workflows, where high-quality and consistent output is required.
The PS file format is based on a stack-based programming language, where commands and operands are placed on a stack and executed in a sequential manner. This allows for precise control over page layout, typography, color, and other printing parameters.
PS files are typically text-based and can be opened and edited with a text editor. They consist of a series of ASCII characters that represent the PostScript code. The code describes the arrangement and appearance of objects on a page, including text positioning, image placement, and graphical transformations.
While PS files are primarily used for printing, they can also be converted to other formats for digital distribution or further processing. For example, PS files can be converted to PDF (Portable Document Format) files, which are widely supported and can be easily viewed and printed on various devices.
What is ODP File Format?
ODP is a file format used for storing presentation slides in the Open Document Format (ODF). ODP stands for Open Document Presentation. It is the default file format for presentation software applications such as LibreOffice Impress, OpenOffice Impress, and Apache OpenOffice.
ODP files are based on XML, which is a markup language used for organizing and structuring data. They are designed to be an open and interoperable format, allowing users to create, edit, and share presentation slides across different software applications and platforms.
The ODP format supports a wide range of features and elements commonly used in presentations. It includes support for slide layouts, text formatting, images, charts, tables, transitions, animations, and multimedia elements such as audio and video.
One of the advantages of the ODP format is its compatibility with different presentation software. Users can create an ODP presentation in one application and open it in another without losing formatting or content. This facilitates collaboration and allows for seamless sharing and editing of presentations among users.
ODP files can be easily converted to other popular presentation formats, such as Microsoft PowerPoint’s PPTX format or PDF, for broader accessibility and sharing purposes. Additionally, the ODP format promotes long-term document preservation and accessibility, ensuring that presentations can be accessed and displayed accurately over time.
