I have two folders, one which is the shapefiles which define the polygons for my extract by mask (there are 33 of them) and one which has my rasters (10 of them). For each of the 33 shapefiles I want to do an extract by mask with all 10 of the rasters. So my output will be 330 new rasters.

I have tried two different ways to do this each with the same result. The first is to use a zipped list:

arcpy.CheckOutExtension('Spatial')
arcpy.env.workspace=r'G:\raster_pathway'
rasters=arcpy.ListRasters('*.tif')
arcpy.env.workspace=r'G:\shapefile_pathway'
shapefiles=arcpy.ListFeatureClasses('*.shp')
out=r'G:\output_pathway'
for ras1, shape1 in zip(rasters, shapefiles):
    outpath=os.path.join(out,shape1[:-4] + '_' + ras2[:-4] + '.tif')
    arcpy.gp.ExtractByMask_sa(ras1,shape1, outpath)

the second way is to use a nested loop:

  arcpy.CheckOutExtension('Spatial')
  arcpy.env.workspace=r'G:\raster_pathway'
  rasters=arcpy.ListRasters('*.tif')
  arcpy.env.workspace=r'G:\shapefile_pathway'
  shapefiles=arcpy.ListFeatureClasses('*.shp')
  out=r'G:\output_pathway'
  for shapefile in shapefiles:
    for raster in rasters:
        outpath=os.path.join(out, shapefile[:-4] + '_' + raster[:-4] +'.tif')
        arcpy.gp.ExtractByMask_sa(raster,shapefile, outpath)

in both cases the following error is returned:

Traceback (most recent call last):

Failed to execute (ExtractByMask).

CDL_2006_Group_lookup_new_prj30m.tif is the first raster within rasters

It definitely exists though.

When you use the ListRasters and ListFeatureClasses functions, you are within different workspaces. The paths are relative to the workspace, so no, CDL_2006_Group_lookup_new_prj30m.tif does not exist, because you're telling it to look for r'G:\shapefile_pathway\CDL_2006_Group_lookup_new_prj30m.tif'

Rewrite the first few lines to be:

import os

arcpy.CheckOutExtension('Spatial')
arcpy.env.workspace=r'G:\raster_pathway'
rasters = [os.path.join(arcpy.env.workspace, i) for i in arcpy.ListRasters('*.tif')]
arcpy.env.workspace=r'G:\shapefile_pathway'
shapefiles = [os.path.join(arcpy.env.workspace, i) for i in arcpy.ListFeatureClasses('*.shp')]

This will store the full paths to the datasets in the lists.
