I am using gopro for videos of kite foiling. I have a line mount which keeps the cameral always pointed at the subject (me) but because its in the lines, as the kite is moving up and down and from one side of the "kite Window" to the other, it spins me (the subject) around from upside down to right side up or if I'm doing a kite loop for instance, it spins me around 360 degrees. Is there a way in post processing to not only stabilize the jitters but to keep me always vertical? I have seen some ediing where the rectangular frame spins but the subject is right side up, but I could image a type of circular vignette frame that kept me vertical and the viewer wouldn't notice the spinning because the frame was circular. Any ideas on how to produce this effect (which software etc) or if there are settings on the GoPro to allow me to stay right side up in the frame?

Yes you can use a video editor like Premier Pro and adjust the orientation of the camera angle based upon keyframes in relation to what's happening on the screen.

Thanks very much, will try it and let you know on this post if i have any issues. Do you know if I can make the frame circular so it doesn't disorient the viewers or is that in FX?

Two options, one would be to crop the frame to the extent that it doesn't look like anythings missing, although you'd have wanted to have mounted your cam high enough and film in the highest resolution possible so you can crop with no quality loss. Otherwise you can create a vignette effect by using either the vieo effect panel and dropping a circle effect onto the timeline or you can use the luma cruve effect, then create an eclipse mask and increase the contrast using the Luma waveform window. That will give you the option to reposition as well based on keyframes.
