Hi  all,
clipping a large raster image (1.3Gb) I tried to use "-co 
COMPRESS=DEFLATE -co PREDICTOR=2" but the output grew till getting an 
error (ERROR 1: TIFFAppendToStrip:Maximum TIFF file size exceeded. Use 
BIGTIFF=YES creation option. ERROR 1: WriteEncodedTile/Strip() failed. ) 
because it was trying to create a >4Gb file.

Am I the only one? Any idea?

Working with osgeo QGIS 2.10.1 64bit on Win7.

All the best,
