Styling lost when converting Word or PowerPoint to pdf

I have a Word and a PowerPoint document containing various graphic elements. When the documents are converted to pdf using Aspose, some of the graphic elements is changed. The documents is attached to this support case as a zip file (2.8 MB)

The code for converting is very simple:

Document document = new Aspose.Words.Document(@“c:\temp\picture effects.docx”);
document.Save(@“c:\temp\picture effects.pdf”, SaveFormat.Pdf);

Presentation presentation = new Presentation(@“c:\temp\test figures.pptx”);
presentation.Save(@“c:\temp\test figures.pdf”, SaveFormat.Pdf);

For the word document on page 6 the 3d effect for the “Hello World!” label is lost. On page 7 one of the
dinosaur is rotated and another missing the black color.

For the PowerPoint document on page 3 the images is not longer tilted.On page 4 the chart is missing. On page 5 the giraffe has a wrong background.

Is this an error? Or can something be done to avoid the changes?,

Thanks for the sample documents and details.
