How to do get the camera to follow a moving object
How to do get the camera to follow a moving object? In LightWave, you connect the camera to the object and it automatically tracks where ever it moves. How do you do this in Maya so it tracks a moving object without setting keys?

Example: Panning shot with object moving in front of the camera so the object stays centered in the camera view?

you could group the object and the camera and move the group

Or use a camera with an aim constraint. Check the docs.
