This one is a real pain. A lot of people like this feature when Lumetri panel is open, I don't. Is there an option to turn it off permanently? Currently, it gets checked automatically every-time I switch to the Lumetri Workspace. Seriously need a way to stop this behaviour!
The only way to keep it off is to keep the Lumetri panel closed.
That's good to know, thanks Jim!
Still, the fact that "Selection Follows Playhead" always defaults to ON drives me FRIGGIN NUTS!!! Can't tell you how many times I've spent time selecting a detailed range of clips or a bunch of discontiguous clips in a sequence that I want to move somewhere else and then once I move the playhead, they're all deselected. Aaargh! And then you turn it off for one sequence and then open another sequence in the same project- assuming it's now turned off- and then it's back on again and burns me again. So frustrating...
I do like to always have the Lumetri panel open in my standard layout but maybe I'll have to get rid of it until there's a setting in Preferences to have it OFF by default.
That behaviour changed in 2018.
If you turn it off it stays off despite being in the Lumetri panel.
If you change workspace and change back to a workspace that has the lumetri panel open, it will be on again.
I have several workspaces I jump around. one or 2 of them has lumetri panel. Whenever I go those workspaces, "selection follows playhead" is on automatically and remains so until I manually turn it off
Even on CC 2018
I think you are right.
This still turns on automatically, annoying. The answer is at the bottom and not listed as correct.
ADOBE again frustrated me to the point I ended here. And again I learned it is no way around it. Thank you Phase One, I am at least saved from Lightroom. Now Premiere is next to ditch after so many years.
It's madness. I grade clip by clip with curves and lumetry concurently (becasue lumetri work OK unly if curves are properly set before. And darn thing keeps turnig ON again. I updated Premiere Yesterday. What a FOOL I am (again). It was OK in CC2017 before update. Adobe keep's driving my life as it thinks it is good for me.
This is driving me absolutely insane. I have to bounce in and out of many projects all day, and every time I come back in to a project or switch over to color grading it defaults back on. I can sort of see it being helpful when being in the color panel, but even there I don't want it. If I really want it, I can go turn it on. I often color grade and continue making a few edits while in that workspace. I thought I could live with it if it was only when going into Color, but no - every time I open a project that thing is defaulted back on. Why? Why won't that setting stick? Please change this Adobe. I am on CC 2018.
I just did a search on this topic today because I was hoping there was a way OUT of this madness. Ann Benns who supposedly had "the correct answer" is dead wrong, this is still a problem. I usually keep my Lumetri tab in the same panel as my project tab, and when the Lumetri is brought to the foreground, "Selection Follows Playhead" gets turned on. EVERY TIME. If I'm not color grading, I can bring the project tab back to the foreground and "Selection Follows Playhead" automatically gets turned off (which must drive people who actually LIKE "Selection Follows Playhead" just as crazy as those of us who do not). Another frustration is that I work with a partner who doesn't know the difference and always has it turned on, and when he passes me a project file and I open it, suddenly it's turned on in all my projects. UGH. Soooo many times I forget that this is the case and I start moving the wrong clip or something. SO AGGRAVATING!!!! Side note: I wish Premiere would prioritize MY settings since I already have a project open, and when I open someone else's project, it would conform to my layout and all my settings but instead everything is kind of how that other person had it, so if they are sloppy (which he IS) and they have panels floating all over the place and "Selection Follows Playhead" turned on (and probably some other annoying things I'm not thinking of at the moment), when I open his projects that is how everything opens up. I suppose in this case, training my partner is the "workaround" but he just ignores me.
Sorry but mine stays off.
Is there some special setting to make it stay off?
Turn in off in the drop down menu.
Seems that 'selection follows playhead' is only off whilst the Lumetri Color panel is closed.
If Lumetri Color panel opened, or workspace with it open is selected then 'selection follows playhead' is enabled.
It is disabled again (if it was already disabled previously) when the Lumetri Color panel is closed.
Update to the latest version. 2018.1.2

I found that if you toggle off the track targeting from the timeline, the "selection follows playhead" gets disabled.
How do you turn off Selection Follows Playhead? I've been searching online and can't find an answer.
Thank you! ctrl+F12 -> dropdown debug database. Color.AutoSelectionFollowsPlayhead = false
