So I finished the basic tutorial on how to get Vuforia working in Unity (4.6 to be specific) using a single target and 3D model.
Now, I was wondering what would be the proper way to do the same thing for a rather large database. Right now, my database has 75 possible targets. I have 3 other databases with roughly the same amount as well. I know I can't use more than one database at a time, but I think I can work around that.
At the moment I am basically creating an ImageTarget object in Unity for each an every target I have in my database. I'm about 25 targets in, and I'm at the point where I feel like I'm not doing this right. Am I really supposed to make an ImageTarget object for each item in my database? It's incredibly tedious, and I can't imagine it's efficient, either.
If it helps, here's the gist of my application. I have a list of icons in the database. When the camera views the Icon, it displays a name and description of that Icon fetched from an xml/json/csv file I have. That's pretty much all there is to it. Do I really need to make an ImageTarget for each and every icon?
