New to Houdini

Hey all, I am just picking up and learning houdini. And one of the things thats causing a great amount of frustration is the general camera to move around and look(ie perspective). Where I would like it to be able to rotate around a geo. Rather than rotating at its center point of the camera. Is this changable or is it just a learning curve I will have to assimilate?

If I want to rotate around an object then I select it and press spacebar-a to center it then I dolly out a bit and tumble. If you press spacebar-z while pointing at a particular point on your object then you will rotate around that point (good when pushing and pulling points during modelling).

There are also alternative tumbling methods available in Edit > Preferences > 3D Viewport. Maybe you prefer one of the other methods.
