I am trying to clip a raster by shapefile perimeter using the clip tool. The percentage has been jumping between 0% and 100% for over an hour, back and forth, climbing to 100% then dropping down to like... %35 or so all over again. Does anyone know how to fix this? I'm desperately trying to cut down this raster file so I can continue doing my work, since it has to re-draw the entire raster every time I add a point to a point shapefile. Arg!

Rachel, please take some time to read through the faq and then reformulate your question. It's nearly impossible to answer your question without even knowing what program/version you're using. –  unicoletti Mar 19 '12 at 6:01
Sorry about that. They did end up working, but the error occured the entire time and I had no sense of how close it was to done. I'm using ArcGIS10 with SP4 installed. This occurred in ArcMap while running the Clip tool under Data Management Tools > Raster > Raster Processing > Clip. –  Rachel Mar 21 '12 at 3:33
