Do you need to convert each page of a PDF into an image format such as PNG or JPG in order to use in a video project for Final Cut Pro X?  One of the quickest ways that you can do this is to use Workflow on an iOS device such as an iPad or iPhone.

To do this conversion, follow these steps:

• Install the Workflow app.

• Create a Workflow as an Action Extension with the following steps:


• Open the PDF to convert.

• Tap the Share button in order to access the Share Sheet.

• Choose Run Workflow and select the PDF to Image conversion.


Once you run this Workflow Action Extension, each page of the PDF is exported as a separate image file.

  • TIFF File
  • PNG Image
  • Photoshop File
  • Open EXR
  • DPX Image
