About LEADTOOLS Vector Imaging Pro SDK

Provide 2-D and 3-D vector imaging for loading, viewing, modifying and saving vector files to memory/disk in native vector format.

LEADTOOLS Vector Imaging Pro SDK includes a low level API, and C++ Class library to add, edit, delete, rotate, translate, and scale objects. Group objects into layers. Change camera and lights. OpenGL, DirectX or GDI engines supported. Convert and save vector images to any of the over 150 raster file formats supported by LEAD.

The LEADTOOLS Vector Imaging Pro SDK includes everything you need to create powerful 2-D and 3-D viewers, editors, and converters that support both vector and raster image formats. LEADTOOLS Vector Imaging eliminates the need to install or license more expensive original applications that have a larger memory footprint and may not have any automation functionality. If you're looking for a feature rich vector imaging SDK then try LEADTOOLS Vector Imaging.

View and Edit Support:
Low and high-level functions to control the view of vector drawings include zooming (both uniform or around any axis), panning, rotation (around any axis) and anti-aliasing. Vector drawings can be edited in any way desired including adding, modifying, deleting and copying objects into the clipboard or between different vector drawings.

Printing Support:
Functionality to scale the vector drawing to any resolution desired without distorting the original image ensures that fine details of the drawing will not be lost during printing.

Vector Conversion Support:
Vector files can be loaded from one format and saved as another, without the need for the original application that created the file.

Raster Image Support:
Vector files can be converted to any resolution raster image and saved to any of the 150+ image file formats and sub-formats that the LEADTOOLS Imaging products support.

Other general imaging features include: Image Format support (import/export), Compression, Image Processing (Transforms, Filters, Drawing, Region of Interest), Color Conversion, Display, Special Effects (choose from more than 2000 effects), Printing, Internet/intranet imaging, Database imaging, Imaging Common Dialogs and Screen Capture.

About LEADTOOLS Vector Imaging Engine:

  • Add, edit, and delete objects.
  • Rotate around any axis, translate, and scale (1-1000%) entire images or selected objects.
  • Convert complex objects to more primitive types.
  • Group objects into layers or groups, copy or move objects between layers or groups.
  • Add, edit, delete and copy entire layers and groups between vector images.
  • Make layers invisible or lock (disable changes to) individual layers.
  • Convert points from world space to screen space and vice versa.
  • Perform pixel-accurate hit testing to select/deselect objects.
  • Select and transform entire objects or individual elements and copy them to/from the Windows clipboard.
  • Convert vector images on the fly to/from Windows metafile handles.
  • Use 3D viewing options including lighting, shadow, camera, polygon modes (points, wire-frame, filled).
  • Common dialogs to simplify tasks needed when working with vector images.
  • Optimized drawing using GDI engine.
  • Render or overlay a vector image (or part of a vector image) to a raster image at any size/resolution.
  • Convert to and from different vector file formats.
  • Vector images can also be converted and saved as any of the image formats supported by LEAD.

Two programming interfaces are included:
A low level API, and C++ Class library. LEADTOOLS Vector Imaging ships with sample source code for C/C++ and Visual C++ (MFC).
