Give a alpha degree and set image transparency. I didn't find the API to do this.

you can set transparency by changing alpha channel values as shown with the code below

#include "opencv2/highgui/highgui.hpp"
#include "opencv2/imgproc/imgproc.hpp"

using namespace cv;

int main( int, char** argv )
{
    Mat image(400, 400, CV_8UC4, Scalar(0, 0, 200));
    Mat bgra[4];
    split(image,bgra);

    rectangle(bgra[3],Rect(100,100,200,200),Scalar(255),-1);

    merge(bgra,4,image);
    imwrite("transparent1.png",image);

    rectangle(bgra[3],Rect(150,150,100,100),Scalar(127),-1);
    merge(bgra,4,image);
    imwrite("transparent2.png",image);

    bgra[3] = bgra[3] * 0.5; // here you can change transparency %50
    // bgra[3] = bgra[3] + 50 // you can add some value 
    // bgra[3] = bgra[3] - 50 // you can subtract some value

    merge(bgra,4,image);
    imwrite("transparent3.png",image);

    waitKey(0);
    return(0);
}
