Un-Precompose was originally released in 2011 and had remained basically unchanged since its initial release. With version 1.1.0, Un-Precompose has been updated with additional features and, more importantly, support for the latest versions of After Effects and newer operating systems.
Even with these updates, Un-Precompose remains a free / pay-what-you-want tool. Please be sure to test the plugin first before deciding to pay for it, if you choose to do so.
