RGB-composite raster (6,27 MB, derived from Landsat-8 band images) is clipped by a shapefile (Toolbox - Data management tools - Raster - Raster processing). It takes too long time (foreground processing shows 4% and it goes on at least 1 hour). ArcGIS 10.5.1, RAM 4 GB, Windows 7 x64. How to solve this problem?

  • What is the resolution for the output file and how complex is your shapefile? – Michael Dec 17 '17 at 12:48
  • Spatial resolution should be the same, as in the input raster (30 meters). Shapefile contains a single polygon. Actually, I was mistaken with the size of RGB-composite raster: it's 240 MB, not 6,27. – oksasteppe Dec 17 '17 at 14:20
  • does your shapefile have a lot of nodes? Technically there is no reason that this takes so long. Have you tried to clip your Raster using GDAL? – Michael Dec 18 '17 at 7:57

You might try an Extract by mask, to check if it works better

  • "Extract by mask" in Spatial Analyst tools - Extraction... works! Thank you very much! – oksasteppe Dec 17 '17 at 15:06
