I want to build raster catalog that would contain many .sid (MrSID) georeferenced rasters. I already successfully built such catalog with tiffs using gdalbuildvrt but when I try with .sid, every raster is its own band. I presume problem is in gdal understanding MrSID compression, since importing individual images into QGIS works fine. How can I build catalog for use in QGIS with these images without converting them?


After a while found a way to build VRT. I used Virtual Raster Builder plugin that can also handle .sid files.
