Add a "get a temporary render texture array" command.

This creates a temporary render texture array with given parameters, and sets it up as a global shader property with nameID. Use Shader.PropertyToID to create the integer name.

Release the temporary render texture array using ReleaseTemporaryRT, passing the same nameID. Any temporary textures that were not explicitly released will be removed after camera is done rendering, or after Graphics.ExecuteCommandBuffer is done.

After getting a temporary render texture array, you can set it as active (SetRenderTarget) or blit to/from it (Blit). You do not explicitly need to preserve active render targets during command buffer execution (current render targets are saved & restored afterwards).

See Also: ReleaseTemporaryRT, SetRenderTarget, Blit.
