Hi Hernando,
The way to get multiple color zones is to get all of the markers (that 
you want to make zones around) selected at the same time, and then use 
Color Zone in one step.  The markers can have multiple different 
colors, resulting in differently colored volume zones. However, this 
means you can't use different radii for different markers.
I hope this helps,
