most used applications?

I thought it'll be fun (for myself and others) to see what are the applications you use the most ( maybe in descending order) it'll be weddings or other type of video job. No an app competition at all....

I love leaning new applications even if I don't need them for my work....but in an impulse to improve my job I wonder what other application I should take the time to learn besides my editor.

Again, I know a bit about many applications but really only use,

- MPEG streamclip
-FCP
-Color

...coul be a fun poll.

Thanks

John, it's good to see I'm not the only one stuck way back on CS3.

I use:

Premiere Pro CS3
After Effects
Photoshop
Encore
Sony Vegas Pro 8 (for transcoding files from my Sony AVCHD cam to something usable in Premiere)
HDVSplit (for breaking up HDV files captured in Premiere - because the capturing in Premiere is way more stable than Vegas but does not have scene splitting.)

John, what are your Jim Beam settings? I need to compare workflow.
