keep selected object centered while scrubbing timeline?

I've pulpified my cerebrals trying to find even HOW to ask this.... if you are working on an entity in ortho viewports and you want to keep it centered while scrubbing the timeline, can that be done? Like working on the entity in top, left, etc views and if you scrub ahead it just moves wherever you've animated it to. It's hideously disruptive to modify/transform an entity only to have to manually re-center it in ortho views when you wish to do further modifications to that entity in other frames. Like trying to do a tire change on a moving car.

thx in advance! I'd used this feature in Lightwave Layout, just not sure what it's called or even if it's built in to 3DS?

You can make cameras and link them to the object.
