I am using the svg package to include an svg file with transparent 3D graphic and latex code to be set at the right label positions. I tried many different methods to do that (matlab->eps+tex file) where always a bitmap graphic was included in an vector graphic (eps) and non of them did perform nicely. I think the conversion from bitmap to vector graphics has sometimes problems with the conversion since I had regular patterns of white/blank line over the image.
Now after solving this issue with the matlab2svg and importing the resulting pdf of the svg package with
\includesvg I have the issue with quite large files size and slow rendering of the final pdf at the corresponding pages.
Now I thought maybe one could change the svg package such that it generates the intermediate pdf not with the vector graphic but with a high resolution bitmap pdf (let's say 600dpi). This should decrease the final file size and increase the pdf rendering while viewing it.
Can somebody tell me if this is possible and how I could come to this solution? Maybe it is just a change of an option and that's it. My goal is to have a quite straight forwards automated workflow and until now the svg workflow was the best for my graphics despite of the resulting file size.
Hope for some advise. Best regards to the latex geeks out there!
