Can I see the Nikon Camera Focus Points in Camera Raw?

Hello - I have a Nikon DSLR and use Bridge/Photoshop 2019 CC.  Is it possible to see the focus points that were used by the camera when taking a photo?  I shoot with Nikon NEF raw files.  I think that NEF files are encrypted, perhaps.  I could be wrong.  If not, can I see this in Bridge or Raw?  Or Photoshop 2019?  I don't want to use the Nikon software that would show this because it's not easy to use as Adobe software.

There are a few plug-ins for Lightroom and Photoshop that will show you focus points for some cameras. None of them work 100% of the time, but they do ok. The best way is with the Nikon software with the original NEF files.

Jeff, this is true of cameras before the last version update of Showfocus Points which was in 2017. The current version doesn't support newer cameras (i.e. Nikon Z series, D850, D5 etc.). I have not found a different software vendor that has a plugin for Lightroom that does the same thing.
