  1. I'm saving all my data and layers in one folder.

  2. My layers are all in the same coordinate system.

  3. I also tried saving the points I want to interpolate as a shapefile first before clipping

  4. I've been using mask as the clipping mode

  5. I tried saving it as a .tif file and all the other recommended extensions in the error message but it still doesn't want to work.

I ran into this same error when running Raster>Extraction>Clipper (QGIS 2.16.0). I just ended up modifying the gdalwarp script at the bottom of the dialog from "-of GMT" to "-of GTIFF" as shown in the screencapture.
