Bug report #16620

gdal tools in raster menu defaulting to output MSGN instead of GTiff

Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:24520


Noticed this from the OSGeo4W installed version on Windows 10 (qgis-rel-dev, daily build of release branch).

Used the merge and warp tools found in the raster menu but even when you browse to designate the output file with .tif extension, the command actually uses -of MSGN

I think it's supposed to use -of GTiff instead.

I just tested on 2.18.8 qgis-rel-dev and cannot confirm both using the "old" gdal tools (that if it has a bug it would not be fixed anyway) as also the Processing toolbox. Tested with warp.

Tested in 2.18.10 and looks like the tools are now working as expected =)
