"No data" in multi-band data

I'm going to put this as a "feature request" though it might be considered a bug.

I have three band raster data. On the "transparency" page I've set "0" to be "no data". The problem is, if even one of the three bands has a "0", QGIS renders the entire pixel as being "no data". As such I get entire fields filled with "no data" speckles because a single band (red) is often 0.

I'd suggest allowing the user to set "no data" on a per-band basis or requiring that all symbolised pixels be no data before rendering as no-data.

Isn't it sufficient to setup custom transparency pixel list in the Transparency tab? It is possible to choose which colors (R,G,B) should be transparent.

I didn't know about that. But seeing it now, what's the point of having the "no data value" option at all?

Individual raster bands have a nodata value, so it's a simple way to mask them.
