    It would be great to be able to import an HDR/EXR image file at runtime.

    Within the Editor there is a great ability to import an HDR/EXR image into a Texture and then use it as a Skybox. We can't do this at runtime as the Texture2D only supports PNG/JPG.

    Evening providing script access to the existing import routines would be okay.

    Here is a forum post that explains the issue.

    This seems like a simple change to expose some internal APIs, any chance we could get some action here?
