Adobe Illustrator
Although I have been using Illustrator for as long as I've used Photoshop, I work only within the basics of it.
I have not used Quark for 4 years now, but I knew it inside and out until we 'switched', so I must note this.
Adobe After Effects
After Effects is essentially Photoshop for Video. It is the full on editing tool for Video. I have produced dozens of animated product renderings and environment walkthru's using After Effects. The final output can be to DVD or .avi or mpg. This a very useful tool to finalizing animated 3d renderings.
Adobe Photoshop
  Photoshop has been one of my primary tools for more than 10 years now.
3D Studio Max
I use 3D Studio Max for all my modelling. It is an excellent tool for virtual prototyping and pre-production problem solving. Build it virtually first and save money.
Adobe InDesign & Creative Suite (CS4)
   Adobe’s Creative Suite 4 (Design Premium) includes Indesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, Bridge, Dreamweaver, Flash, and Fireworks.     I am very comfortable using the entire spectrum of software within the Adobe Premium Creative Suite.    My freelance website and portfolio website, I created and published using Flash and Dreamweaver. And for video production, I use After Effects, Premier, and Encore DVD.
