I know a powerful document converter that can help you convert PPT to BMP by. It is capable of converting any printable files to over 100 image file formats. This document converter is VeryPDF Document Converter (docPrint Pro), which supports four applications. docPrint Pro Command Line is the application which can help you use to convert PPT to BMP.
After you download Document Converter and install it on your hard disk, you can find an executable file named doc2pdf.exe in the installation folder. This executable file doc2pdf.exe is docPrint Pro Command Line. The following will explain how to use doc2pdf.exe to generate BMP from PPT. It requires three or two steps.
First, before you run doc2pdf.exe, you need to open a command prompt window. Different ways can be used to open a command prompt window. For example, if you are a Windows XP user, please click Start, and then click Command Prompt on the Start menu; Or you can click Start, click Run, type cmd and then press Enter. When the command prompt window appears on the desktop, please proceed to the next step.
Second, find doc2pdf.exe. Because in the next step, we are going to type the path of the executable file doc2pdf.exe in the command prompt window; we need to find the folder where doc2pdf.exe is stored. If you know where the executable file is, please skip to the next step. If not, please go on reading. You can find doc2pdf.exe as follows:

- Click Find Target in the Properties dialog box. Then, a window will pop out and you can find the path of the folder in the Address Bar.
Third, type a command line in the command prompt window and then press Enter. The following shows the command line syntax:
doc2pdf [options] <-i Document Files> [-o Output]
You can use docPrint Pro Command Line to create a single BMP from a PPT file by a command line as the following one:
"C:\docPrint Pro v5.0\doc2pdf.exe" -i D:\in.ppt -o E:\out.bmp
You can also use this application to convert multiple PPT files to BMP files in a batch by a single command line as follows:
"C:\docPrint Pro v5.0\doc2pdf.exe" -i D:\*.ppt -o E:\*.bmp
This is the method I would use if I were asked to convert PPT to BMP by command line. If you want to get more information about VeryPDF Document Converter, please visit http://verypdf.com/artprint/index.html
