Texture
=======

This module provides access to B{Texture} objects in Blender.

Example::
    
    from Blender import Texture,Image,Material
    
    footex = Texture.Get('foo')             # get texture named 'foo'
    footex.setType('Image')                 # make foo be an image texture
    img = Image.Load('test.png')            # load an image
    footex.image = img                      # link the image to the texture

    mat = Material.Get('bar')               # get a material
    mtextures = mat.getTextures()           # get a list of the MTex objects
    for mtex in mtextures:
        if mtex.tex.type == Texture.Types.IMAGE: 
            print mtex.tex.image.filename   # print the filenames of all the
                                            # images in textures linked to "bar"

    mat.setTexture(0, footex)               # set the material's first texture
                                            # to be our texture
