Sets a global texture property for all shaders.

Global properties are used if a shader needs them but the material does not have them defined (for example, if the shader does not expose them in Properties block).

Usually this is used if you have a set of custom shaders that all use the same "global" texture (for example, custom diffuse-lighting cubemap). Then you can set the global property from script and don't have to setup the same texture in all materials.
