I may be a little biased, but:
Softimage (EOL), Modo.
With tons of scripts, plugins, and a technical department, Maya could make a 3rd place.
Softimage (EOL), Maya.
I don't do VFX, but judging from what I've seen:
Howdini, Softimage (EOL).
With tons of scripts, plugins, and a technical department, Maya and Max could make a 3rd or 2nd place.
I'm only counting the packages I've used the most : Maya, Softimage, Max, Modo. (I constantly use Maya and Softimage)
I haven't used too much, if at all : Cinema4D, Lightwave , Motion Builder, Blender.
Since Softimage is dead and you can't buy it anymore, the most complete all-around package would be Maya IMHO.
