    Having a CinemachineBrain in my scene causes the scene to think it has unsaved changes when leaving play mode. Effectively, every time I leave Play Mode, I get a "*" next to the scene name. I reported this as Bug #1115557, so this is just a heads up.

    This is a side-effect of SaveDuringPlay functionality, which allows tweaks made to the vcam settings while in play mode to be retained when you come back to edit mode. If this bothers you, then you can just turn off the SaveDuringPlay feature:

    Thanks. That's helpful. Worth mentioning: the test case I submitted didn't have a Cinemachine Virtual Camera in the scene, just a Cinemachine Brain. So there was no Save During Play to uncheck. However, upon adding a Cinemachine Virtual Camera and unchecking Save During Play, that cleared up the dirty problem. So that's probably fine given that I don't think I'd have the former without the latter.
