Importing full presentation from PDF to Jessy svg

Asked by ozroc on 2010-10-13

I think this shouldn't be difficult with enough knowledge.

The idea is to export a LaTeX+Beamer presentation in PDF to a JessyInk svg... So I can upload all my old PDF presentations in an accessible svg+javascript format.

It is quite easy to export each Beamer frame to a svg file via pdf2svg
$ pdf2svg beamer_presentation.pdf output-page%d.svg all
Then I import each output-page in a new layer in inkscape, install the JessyInk, play with effects and views and save it as a new svg.

This works for simple presentations but I know it is far from optimal, generates a too heavy output and is quite tedious...

┬┐Do you have any ideas on doing this better?

Thanks for letting me know! That sounds really neat. I don't know, if there is a much better way of doing it. One could maybe automate the conversion step, so that the user doesn't have to copy page by page into a new SVG file. I have not yet looked into converting PDF presentations. Actually, so far most questions have been on how to produce PDF from SVG. In any case, I will try and incorporate this very nice hack into the documentation for JessyInk, so that other people can benefit from it as well.
