Hi, Im newbie two Python scripting at all, anyway.

I'm trying to sum two rasters in Python toolbox, but it doesn't work the way I want it to. Here's the code:

import arcpy
from arcpy import env
from import *

class Toolbox(object):
    def __init__(self):
        """Define the toolbox (the name of the toolbox is the name of the
        .pyt file)."""
        self.label = "Toolbox"
        self.alias = ""
        # List of tool classes associated with this toolbox = [Tool]

class Tool(object):
    def __init__(self):
        """Define the tool (tool name is the name of the class)."""
        self.label = "Tool"
        self.description = ""
        self.canRunInBackground = False

    def getParameterInfo(self):
        """Define parameter definitions"""
        param0 = arcpy.Parameter(displayName="Input Features", name="in_features", datatype="DERasterDataset",  parameterType="Required", direction="Input", multiValue = True)
        params = [param0]
        return params

    def isLicensed(self):
        """Set whether tool is licensed to execute."""
        return True

    def updateParameters(self, parameters):
        """Modify the values and properties of parameters before internal
        validation is performed.  This method is called whenever a parameter
        has been changed."""

    def updateMessages(self, parameters):
        """Modify the messages created by internal validation for each tool
        parameter.  This method is called after internal validation."""

    def execute(self, parameters, messages):
        # Set environment settings
        env.workspace = "C:/temp"

        #Set local variables
        inRaster = parameters[0].valueAsText
        rasters = inRaster.split(';')

        # Check out the ArcGIS Spatial Analyst extension license

        #Execute sum
        output = Raster(rasters[0]) + Raster(rasters[1])

        #Save the output"C:/temp/result/output02")


I have two different 0-1 rasters in the same region created from different buffers. I expected it sums for each pixels it values, when on the same pixels i need it to give two when both pixels are black, one when when one of them is black and 0 when both are 0. But it just gives me nearly the same raster as the first. What do I do wrong? I expect it to work this way:


Here're the results I get, at first look the result's streams are not continous, but due to the image it should be:
