Applescript step to extract tiff files from Adobe Acrobat

Do you have any idea if Filemaker Scriptmaker could handle the following process with Adobe Acrobat?  Maybe with Applescripting? Take the pdf file stored in a  field and open Acrobat Pro and have it extract separate pages from the pdf into something like individual tiff files for each page in the document then store the pages?  There is an Acrobat extract command.  I know Adobe Indesign had a Filemaker plugin to print pages from Indesign.  I know Acrobat has an object model.    I need some way to do this.  I could do it in PHP but the customer has a Filemaker database already and it would be easier to run side processes in the db and then have PHP or Javascript display the individual tiffs.  All I need is the pdf file in separate pages.  I know that is a lot to ask but if you have any thoughts on it let me know?
