You might want to clarify your goal here. Are you looking for something advanced enough to do actual movies with, or something to make quick little edits?

transcode / mencoder / ffmpeg (for the actual conversion(s))

lives is supposed to be good for NLE (non-linear editing). Cinelerra is another older option. KDEnLive (or something like that). VLC, and many many others.
