truehair?

are they still making that? I see they're still charging for a pre-order on their site but is it even still in development since lightwave included FFX?

Now that 9.6 has been released, it's possible we'll see an update to Fprime soon so I might wait a little bit to see the status of it first before I make a decision.

TrueHair has now real-time interactive previewer/renderer like Fprime..
Here is example video

Fadlabi wants renderer for Universal Binary, so for now the only possible solution is Kray (TrueHair previewer was not tested on UB yet, and Fprime doesn't exist for UB as well, according to website (http://www.worley.com/E/ordering.html)).. But it's not real-time previewer at the moment..
