Does any one know of an editing solution to keep the horizon flat with a go pro shot. My pinnacle soft wear will allow me to rotated the images but I would  need to rotated each frame to show the boat leaning over in the gusts. A soft wear solution would be feasible and much easier than a mechanical trimble device.

Thanks for any ideas. My favorit mount is on a boom extension.

Interesting question which Iím afraid I donít know at present, but my other interest is photography so will have a look to see if I can find software which might do what you want. I do use something similar for still editing in Photoshop so guess with any luck there may be the equivalent for video editing.

It will be a lot easier to get a mechanical device to do it. The problem that is the further it heels the further you will need to crop into the video to not show the obvious rotation (the corners will move). This will lose a lot of quality and look odd at best. If you are happy for the edges to be rough then it is possible.
Needs to sail more...

Thanks for your interest. I think an editing solution will be better than a mechanical one because I have enough trouble mounting the camera with the complexity of a well made grimble device. The Go Gro footage has resolution to burn so I think a manipulative image will still be watchable.

When the boom mounted camera has slipped/rotated I have mannually straightened the image using the Pinnacle software. I have put an example of this up on you tube after I had a child over board.

I think it would look better if every frame had a straight horizon.
Any solutions welcome.

You could build a self leveling mount. Lots of the RC world do and quite a few vids on Youtube
