Splitting workflow between nuke and maya

How do i know which work should be done within nuke and which with maya? I can create some particle effects in both apps. There might be some other things that might be done within both of apps. SO is there some pattern on how to choice app for doing the job?

It's all about time & money. You may often times get better results for certain things out of Maya but it will take 5-10x as long. So in Nuke getting 95% the quality is often good enough when your on a short deadline. Vfx is all about iteration. The faster you show versions, the faster you get feedback and the faster you get to the results the director wants.
