Conversion from Pdf to Image Produces Blank Images or Distortion with Horizontal Lines

We’re using Aspose.Pdf to convert pages of documents to images. For most documents this will work fine. However, for some documents the resulting images will come out either blank or with lots of distortion and horizontal lines.

I’ve prepared some sample code and documents that demonstrate the problem and would appreciate any assistance. Sample1.pdf produces a blank image (Sample-Output-1.png). Sample2.pdf produces a distorted image (Sample-Output-2.png). I’m using Aspose.Pdf.dll version (2012.09.28).

Sample code follows:

var License = new Aspose.Pdf.License();

using (var Document = new Aspose.Pdf.Document(@“Sample2.pdf”))
var Page = Document.Pages[1];

var Width = (int)Math.Round(Page.Rect.Width);
var Height = (int)Math.Round(Page.Rect.Height);

var Device = new Aspose.Pdf.Devices.PngDevice(Width, Height, new Aspose.Pdf.Devices.Resolution(96));
using (var Output = File.Create(@“Sample-Output-2.png”))
Device.Process(Page, Output);
