I have a raster with a large null area (see the solid black area in the image below). The "Band 1" value throughout this null area is -3.402823e+38.
I'm trying to make sense of the result of my setting the "custom transparency options" so that "Band 1" values from 0 to 0 are 100% transparent (see settings below). Please note that at no point am I making changes to the default Style properties of the raster.
As a result of these settings, the null area does become transparent but the rest of the raster now has strange banding (see result below). My expectation was that the only visual difference between the initial raster and the result raster would be 100% transparency in the null area.
Am I missing something?
EDIT: Per request, here are the the Style settings:
And I have set '0' as an Additional no data value, as shown below.
I have further discovered that I achieve the same strange banded raster result even if I delete the custom 0 to 0, 100% transparency option. To achieve this strange banded raster, I only need to select "Band 1" as the transparency band as shown below.
