1. Create a group centred on the object you want to orbit.
2. Create a sphere/whatever, add it to the group and move it
    however far away you want the camera to be.
3. Uncheck its export box, add a random material to prevent
    software complaint.
4. Set the camera's position reference to the sphere/whatever.
5. Set your keyframes with the group containing the sphere/whatever
    rotating.
6. Animate.

Thank you Tim; that's a very good idea. Would you like to send an example?
