There aren't really things as "standard tools" for Linux. Cinelerra is a
tool for non-linear video editing, quite like Ardour, but for video
instead of audio.

video editing software for creating the audio for this. 

xjadeo + ardour has been used by at least a few people with good
results. xjadeo seems perfect except for one problem, it seems to be
really picky about what type of video files it plays, so you might need
to transcode the video file to the correct format before being able to
play it with xjadeo.

The basic idea behind xjadeo is simple. It syncs to jack transport, so
it will stay in sync with ardour. Or any other jack transport enabled
software, like muse.
