SilverMotion 1.2.0 has been released

New general features:

- New method to load FileImage from SilverLight BitmapSource
- Moved the VideoTextureMotion to Motions.cs
- Camera now has ProjectPoint method which enables 3d to 2d point conversion
- New methods in RenderEnvironment to position 3d models quickly:
        ProjectPoint - transforms a 3D point into its projected coordinates on the screen pixels
        CastRay - Casts a ray from a given set of 2D coordinates and returns its starting point and direction in 3D

Fixes:
- When loading additional 3d models with Import3DSFile, SilverMotion now checks if the scene has lights and if it has it adds light shaders to the newely added models.
