Set a named texture.

Many shaders use more than one texture. Use SetTexture to change the propertyName texture.

Common texture names used by Unity's builtin shaders:
"_MainTex" is the main diffuse texture. This can also be accessed via mainTexture property.
"_BumpMap" is the normal map.
"_Cube" is the reflection cubemap.

See Also: mainTexture property, GetTexture, Shader.PropertyToID.
