It is easy for an user to miss the selection of an output format by selecting one from the dropdown list, leaving it undefined (*). The resulting error is difficult to understand.
Better setting TIFF as a default for all analyses, so only conscious users will select a different one, all others will leave the default.

  • Crashes QGIS or corrupts data set to No
  • Affected QGIS version set to master
  • Target version set to Version 2.6
  • Priority changed from Normal to Severe/Regression
  • Tracker changed from Feature request to Bug report

this changed in qgis master, the default was always GeoTiff, if the output format was left blank.

The error if because now it takes the first available format from the formats list, and is a particular format with limitations when it comes to create it.
