There are both, though, for instance Inkscape and Cinelerra or avidemux.

As Will wrote, it depends on what you're trying to do. Can you say exactly
what you want to do, that the Linux applications can't do, or that are more
difficult with Linux tools? The FOSS philosophy says that if you find flaws in a
Free Software project, the polite and useful reaction is to report the issue
to the developers so that they can fix it.
