Real-time demo with textures

We added textures to the meshes in the real-time demo. The textures are built from the views of 60 cameras. This requires to compress 60 4Mpix images to less than 10 MB so that the NIC and GPU of the rendering machine do not get overloaded. Therefore, the textures are...
