On a D800 in Movie mode, can focus follow the subject?

On my camcorder, the focus will lock on what ever is in the center of the viewfinder. This is great for a moving object or when panning. On my D800 the focus only changes when I depress the AF-ON button or the shutter button. Is there a setting I'm missing to emulate my camcorder or is this just something you have to put up with when shooting movies with a DSLR?
