Good application to render or convert SVG files to other file formats [closed]

I need to render SVG files to other file formats (.png, for example.) What's a good application for performing that render or conversion?

Inkscape can export SVG to bitmap formats.

"GIMP or Inkscape are usually very good at converting SVG to other formats.

Opening the SVG file in GIMP will cause it to ask you what size (resolution) to treat the file as to convert to a bitmap style image. You can then save it as you like.

Inkscape is a Vector editor, from which you can export to a plethora of formats. Open the file then select File > Export Bitmap."

"Found this using Inkscape via http://gastarbeiten.wordpress.com/2012/08/03/batch-convert-svg-to-png-with-inkscape-command-line/

$ cd your-directory-with-the-svgs/
$ for i in *; do inkscape $i --export-png=`echo $i | sed -e 's/svg$/png/'`; done

HTH"
