Aspose.Total for .NET is a powerful package of File Format Automation APIs that makes it easy to Render XPS to ODP in two simple steps. The first step is to use the PDF Processing API, Aspose.PDF for .NET, to transform the XPS file format to PPTX. This API provides a wide range of features to manipulate PDF documents, including the ability to convert XPS to PPTX.
The second step is to use the Presentation Processing API, Aspose.Slides for .NET, to convert the PPTX to ODP. This API provides a comprehensive set of features to create, edit, and manipulate presentations, including the ability to convert PPTX to ODP. It also supports a wide range of presentation formats, including ODP, PPT, PPTX, PPS, PPSX, and more.
Using Aspose.Total for .NET, you can easily and quickly Render XPS to ODP in two simple steps. The PDF Processing API, Aspose.PDF for .NET, can be used to convert XPS to PPTX, and the Presentation Processing API, Aspose.Slides for .NET, can be used to convert PPTX to ODP. Both APIs provide a wide range of features to create, edit, and manipulate documents and presentations, making it easy to Render XPS to ODP.
.NET API to Convert XPS 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.xps"); // save XPS 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 XPS File via .NET
While converting XPS 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 XPS file’s XMP metadata. To get a XPS file’s metadata, you can create a Document object and open the input XPS file. After that, you can get the file’s metadata using the Metadata property.
Document doc = new Document("input.xps"); // get XPS 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 XPS File Format?
XPS, short for XML Paper Specification, is a file format created by Microsoft to represent fixed-layout documents. XPS files contain the content and print settings of a document, making them suitable for preserving the layout and appearance of a document across different devices and platforms.
The XPS format is based on XML (eXtensible Markup Language), a widely used markup language for structured data representation. XPS files encapsulate document content, such as text, images, vector graphics, and annotations, in a structured XML format. This enables easy interpretation and rendering of the document’s visual elements.
XPS files are conceptually similar to PDF (Portable Document Format) files in that they both aim to provide a reliable way to present and share documents while preserving their formatting and layout. However, PDF files have gained broader support across different software applications and hardware devices, making them more widely accepted and compatible.
To view and work with XPS files, Microsoft provides an XPS Viewer as part of the Windows operating system. Various third-party applications and tools also offer support for opening, creating, and converting XPS files. However, compared to PDF, the range of software and hardware supporting the XPS format may be more limited.
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.
