Ankify comes in free and paid versions. Free version has all of the features of paid version but will convert only the first 10 files it finds each time. You may, however, use it indefinite number of times.
I know everyone has different study styles. There is no reason to spend a lot of money on a tool that doesn't work for you. With the free version, you'll get to try Ankify as much as you can. And if you end up using it extensively, you can then support me with the full version.
Let me know if you have trouble affording it.

This generates 2 files to import into Anki. Then I make filtered decks from the tags.
