Thanks Kevin, I will have a play with that.

If the SVGs are on disk ... and they contain the width/height information inside ... here's a little trick XSL .. makes a PDF that is only the SVG.

You could run all SVGs to PDF and then all PDFs to image ...

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0"

  <xsl:template match="svg:svg">

        <fo:simple-page-master master-name="svgimage">
          <xsl:attribute name="page-width"><xsl:value-of select="@width"/></xsl:attribute>
          <xsl:attribute name="page-height"><xsl:value-of select="@height"/></xsl:attribute>
          <fo:region-body margin="0cm"/>

      <fo:page-sequence master-reference="svgimage">
        <fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body">
          <fo:block line-height="0">
              <xsl:copy-of select="."/>

Thanks for the replies, it was as I suspected :)

In my particular case, we are producing PDFs which contain charts that are drawn using SVG which I embed in the XSL:FO. The client now wants a 'chart pack' which would be a zip file containing only the images in a rasterized format so that they can be imported into other documents etc. Given that I already have RenderX in the workflow it would be a simple matter if it could output images. But I agree it's not really the right tool for the job.

I've found a product called Inkscape which is an SVG editor and it has a command line utility to rasterize SVG. So I guess I will use that. It's part of a server process so I have to shell out to run it, which I'm not a fan of doing but looks like I have no choice.
