I am looking for a way to tell which focus points were used in LR3, given a raw or jpeg file. I came across with the following plugin but it is not ready yet. Does anyone know of an alternative method?

The only reliable method I know of is to use DPP.

Yeah, LR won't show them so far as I know, but I have never really looked for the option. It has never been a feature that I have seen a use for though, as I know what I would have been focusing on in any given shot.

That's interesting that someone is actually getting something like that together for Lightroom. I gotta admit, though, that it's one of those things I just never find a personal need for, and if I ever do I have DPP on hand. But it's interesting, still the same, that people are able to track that stuff down in the exif, even though he still has only Nikons and it's only working on Macs (so far).

I always use that feature in DPP when reviewing portraits of my never still granddaughters.

It helps to know whether the softness was caused by my failure in tracking the eye, by AI Servo not being up to the subject's fast and erratic movements, or plain camera shake.

Yep, it can be a great tool for evaluation and to get to know your equipment better: finding out what caused an image to be OoF.
Not for much else though. ;)
