For 3ds Max:
Super Simple Rig is a custom rig for 3ds Max I have been developing since 2008. If you are tired of rigging and using complex rigs, and just need a simple rig, Super Simple Rig could be what you are looking for. It is quick to set up, easy to use, and fast to work with.
Super Cubic is a plugin for Photoshop that simplify the process of retouching 360 degree spherical panoramas.
The built in .CG CRT filters in the OpenEmu package is a bit simple. I have put together a filter that looks a lot better.
