Uninformative "failed to create 2D texture" error when creating RGBAHalf or RGBAFloat texture in linear color space

Graphics - General



Priority: 3Not yet prioritized for a release


Severity: 2Core functionality majorly impacted

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open attached project ""
2. Open scene "TestScene"
3. Run it
4. Notice "failed to create 2D texture" which doesn't point to any script and is uninformative

Note: If we use different Texture2D constructor which also accepts color space as parameter then this error isn't present, but no matter which constructor is used, initial texture is always black. Also, Although error that texture generation failed is printed, one can access all properties of texture (width, height etc.).

Reproduced with: 5.1.4f1, 5.2.4f1, 5.3.3p3, 5.4.0b10
