I have a question about the maximum allowed number of raster bands. I noticed ArcPy's Raster class has a bandCount property which is a Integer value. Does it mean a raster can have up to 32767 (int16/short), or 2147483647(int32/int) bands? Any suggestions? The raster is saved in file geodb. thank you.

Greetings,

The IRasterBandCollections interface uses a long to get the item which is a really big number. I've seen data with some 600 bands work without issues. Do you have data with that many bands or are you just trying to see limitations?
