Hello Michał,
The answer is actually shown in the command line of your screenshot image!  You would use the “volume” command to set levels and colors.  Instead of a color name you could give r,g,b,a  values (red, green, blue, alpha=opacity, each on a scale 0-1).  Just like you can say “level” multiple times in the same command, you can also give “color” multiple times.


I hope this helps,
