I have a project that contains an 8-bit paletted layer (call it the mask layer) and a float 32 single band layer (call this the clip layer). I create a new raster by using the raster calculator, defining the extent to match the clip layer, and the value is defined as
(mask@1 >= 0) * clip@1
The resulting raster, when viewed with gdalinfo, has a NoData value of -3.4028234... e+038. Yet the input clip layer has no NoData value. Where is QGIS getting this NoData value from?
