    Every time I use Cinemachine, I can't seem to get the solo button to work. If I press solo on a virtual camera, that should force it to appear in game mode or a mini-view-screen or something, right? Or is this just user error?

    Solo will make the vcam the current active one. The Camera will be force-driven by that vcam. This will override the priority system, and the Timeline. It won't put you in Play mode, or create a preview window. It answers the question: What would my game look like if this were the active vcam right now?
