[postgis-users] Raster Clipping vs Masking

Hello Postgis-users,
I'm looking to find out the most efficient method of clipping/masking a raster with a geometry in postgis.
Multi-band raster


‚ÄčAll pixels of all bands of the raster which intersect with the geometry

So far I have been using the ST_Clip(raster, geom) function.Do you know if there is a way to simply mask the raster with the geometry, rather than perform a clip operation? Would St_Intersection be more appropriate? I'd like to optimize this function as much as possible. Any thoughts/ideas?

Thank you,
Daniel Vignoles
