This is weird question.
But I was curious to learn what is considered the industry standard programs for Compositing and Visual FX. And if there any other programs I'm missing please point them out for me.

Adobe After Effects
Apple Motion

Those the 2 most common that come to my mind.



There are no "technical solutions" to your "artistic problems".
Don't let technology get in the way of your creativity!

Industry standards tend to change fairly quickly, since this is posted in Mac OSX forum I'll assume you're interested in software which works on that platform.

Adobe After Effects. It's a good solid workhorse, fairy easy to learn, bloody near impossible to master.

Foundry's Nuke. Fantastic, very powerful, used by the top end film guys. Seen as the successor to Shake.

Apple Shake. Now end of life. But still loved by many.

Eyeon Fusion. Windows only. Almost as good as Shake. Still being developed, and getting better all the time.

There are others such as Autodesk FLAME, but they tend to need pretty specialised hardware. Right now After Effects and Nuke would be the top two contenders for compositing at the moment.
