In the attached script I'm getting an "ERROR 000229".  I have attached the script.  Please note that the line of code to run the clip to raster is not part of the script yet.

Thanks,

Jim

Add an

import os

at the beginning on your script and change line 9 to:

arcpy.Buffer_analysis(os.path.join(arcpy.env.workspace, featureClass), outbufferpath, "1250 Feet", "FULL", "ROUND")

Joshua,

The script ran without an error but I did not see new features created in the outbufferpath folder.

Thanks,

Jim

Buffer is expecting a feature class path, not a file geodatabase path.  You have to give a path that includes the name of a feature class in your file geodatabase.

arcpy.Buffer_analysis(os.path.join(arcpy.env.workspace, featureClass), os.path.join(outbufferpath, featureClass + "_buffer"), "1250 Feet", "FULL", "ROUND")
