Thanks for your reply. I changed the codec to qrtle and I found that there
is an alpha channel added. My problem, however, exists. I translate opencv
Mat with alpha plane to AVFrame. But in the resultin video I don't see the
added alpha plane.

hello. i would recommend writing your own pixel routine to composit the
layers. its a good chance what does work in the libs is developed around a
different use case. formats matter of course so one may want to go through
the highest bits per pix such as 32 for the blend if its detailed and
involves greenscreen types, but fidelity might be a thing and sometimes the
warmth of the transform to rgba and back is undesired.
