    +1 for Affinity Suite of apps, excellent alternatives to Adobe's flagship products. I've been using Foxit PDF Pro as a replacement for Adobe Acrobat, it's a steal at educational pricing for a full-featured PDF editor/reader with cloud service and mobile app thrown in.

    Blender should definitely be on that list as well for 3d modeling, some use it to do post/ visual effects and others use it to do CAD, it's very extendable.

    If audacity is on that list for audio production, Gimp , Inkscape, Scribus and Libre Office or Open Office deserve a place there too as FOSS options although pretty much all of the FOSS options are not nearly as user-friendly as paid solutions.

    Tex is ideal for serious publishing needs, the learning curve is steep, but very versatile and sustainable compared to desktop publishing in proprietary formats.
