I am trying to use Esri Terrain-Tools v1.1 to create a hillshade from either a 90 m SRTM DEM or 30 m DEM. I have tried saving this to a file geodatabase (FGDB) and .tif. In both cases the error reported is cannot save to "output format" GRID/TIFF
Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:\GIS_local\TOOLS\TerrainTools_v1_1\Scripts\SkyModel.py", line 81, in <module> skymodel(*args) File "C:\GIS_local\TOOLS\TerrainTools_v1_1\Scripts\SkyModel.py", line 63, in skymodel prevRaster.save(outRaster) RuntimeError: ERROR 010240: Could not save raster dataset to C:\GIS_local\hillshade\sky1.tif with output format TIFF. Failed to execute (SkyModel). Failed at Mon Feb 26 17:18:37 2018 (Elapsed Time: 3 hours 46 minutes 44 seconds)
The output file path is to a local internal drive, scratch filepath is to local default GDB, and there should be more than adequate space to save the file. This seems to have been commonly reported in the past in comments on the ESRI website, but no answer was provided.
Does anyone have thoughts on what may be causing this error?
