Aspose.Total for .NET is a powerful package of File Format Automation APIs that makes it easy to Render XPS to SWF 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 SWF. This API provides a comprehensive set of features to manipulate presentations, including the ability to convert PPTX to SWF. It also offers a wide range of features to create, edit, and manipulate presentations, such as the ability to add, delete, and modify slides, add text, images, and shapes, and apply various formatting options.
Using Aspose.Total for .NET, you can easily Render XPS to SWF in two simple steps. The PDF Processing API, Aspose.PDF for .NET, can be used to transform XPS to PPTX, and the Presentation Processing API, Aspose.Slides for .NET, can be used to convert PPTX to SWF. This package of File Format Automation APIs provides a comprehensive set of features to manipulate documents and presentations, making it easy to Render XPS to SWF.
.NET API to Convert XPS to SWF
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.Swf presentation.Save("output.swf", SaveFormat.Swf);
Get XMP Metadata from XPS File via .NET
While converting XPS to SWF, 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 SWF 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 SWF file to Read-Only, which means users (after they open the presentation) see the Read-Only recommendation.
Presentation presentation = new Presentation("PptxOutput.pptx"); // make SWF read only presentation.ProtectionManager.ReadOnlyRecommended = true; // call save method while passing SaveFormat.Swf presentation.Save("output.swf", SaveFormat.Swf);

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 SWF File Format?
The SWF (Shockwave Flash) file format is a popular multimedia format primarily used for delivering interactive and animated content on the web. Developed by Macromedia (now owned by Adobe Systems), SWF files are widely supported by web browsers and plug-ins, making them an integral part of web design and online entertainment.
SWF files are primarily composed of vector graphics, animation, audio, and video elements. They are created using software such as Adobe Animate (formerly known as Flash Professional) or other SWF authoring tools. The format supports interactivity through scripting languages like ActionScript, allowing developers to create interactive buttons, menus, and games within SWF files.
One of the key advantages of SWF files is their compact size. They are highly compressed, resulting in small file sizes that can be quickly downloaded and streamed over the internet. This makes SWF files ideal for delivering multimedia content efficiently, even on slower internet connections.
SWF files are often embedded into web pages, providing a seamless and engaging user experience. They can be played directly within web browsers using Adobe Flash Player or other SWF players. Additionally, SWF files can be standalone applications or screensavers, providing versatile usage beyond the web.
Over the years, the SWF format has evolved to support advanced features like 3D graphics, hardware acceleration, and multimedia streaming. However, it’s important to note that the usage of SWF files has declined in recent years due to the rise of alternative web technologies, such as HTML5 and CSS3, which offer similar capabilities without the need for additional plug-ins or proprietary software.
