Video Editing and Encoding in Linux

After having to pull Video clips off my mums JCV Video Camera and trying to work with the cameras native .MOD files. To find that the only way to make the clips play or be usable in a video editing package was to use ffmpeg to re encode the .MOD files to .AVI files. I wish there was a video editing package that could work natively with the .MOD files or re-encode them on the fly as re-encoding 2-3 years of video clips to .AVI files to be able to edit them is taking forever.

I'd love to be able to find a video editing package with the features of Adobe Premier and the ease of use of Windows movie Maker as the ones that I've tried or eather overly complex or really stripped of features.

I've been told by a friend on Twitter about a Linux Video Editing App called oneshot, will update this post with more info on it when I've had a chance to try it out.

I really wish there was a simpler way to work with the .MOD files that my mums Video Camera produces as it takes an age having to convert each file to a .AVI file, even batch converting the files takes ages with ffmpeg.
