I have an 8 bit raster that I'm clipping using arcpy 10.7
However whenever I clip the raster I expect it to set the pixels outside of the polygon area to NoData(256) and the raster to be promoted to 16 bit but instead it the values clipped out are set to "0", the raster is promoted to 16 bit, the NoData value shows "256", and creates a black bounding box around my georeferenced raster. It works ok if I set the NoData value to "0" but there is a chance that it will share that value with some pixels in the area I want to keep.
Basically the clip is not setting pixels clipped out to my defined NoData value, instead its setting it to zero
The funny thing is that it works correctly on another coworkers arcmap also running 10.7
I have not adjusted any Environment settings.
