I use the following code for rendering to a floating-point texture:
_texture = new Texture2D;
_texture->setTextureSize(_totalWidth, _totalHeight);
_texture->setFilter(Texture2D::MIN_FILTER, Texture2D::NEAREST);
_texture->setFilter(Texture2D::MAG_FILTER, Texture2D::NEAREST);

If I understand it correctly, the Image associated with a Texture is used for
uploading the data into the texture. If you want to read from the texture,
you'll need to copy it to a buffer. I can't remember how to do that off-hand,
but it'll likely be fairly slow.
