PDF to Image Conversion

Several years ago, I remember mentioned here of someone using a browser
object to display a PDF "in an invisible stack", so I use the word
"display" loosely.  Then by some command, the browsers imageData was being
captured into LiveCode.  I wish I knew more about how it was done, because
I often need to show a PDF in my stacks.  I don't like using 3rd party
converters because they often display differently than Adobe Reader does.
