I'm looking to distract the red figures from the background imagery in the attached image. Normally i would use the clipper command in QGIS, but this only works if i only want to have the red figures part of the background imagery.

Can someone tell me how to get the red figures cut out of the background?QGIS screenshot

The background image is a GeoTiff and the red figures are Shapefiles

  • Would it be OK to burn the red figures with your favorite burn color into the image like in gis.stackexchange.com/questions/163371/…? – user30184 Jan 11 '18 at 9:04
  • Check this solution gis.stackexchange.com/a/123652/49538 – Fran Raga Jan 11 '18 at 9:13
  • No not really tho, it has to be "no data", because it would interfere with the object that is placed on the red figures in the future – Nino Jan 11 '18 at 9:17
  • @FranciscoRaga that solution only replaces the values, thats not what i am looking for unfortunately – Nino Jan 11 '18 at 9:26
