Is it possible to use BMT to create fanart for home movies

A lot of views in Sage, and especially in Gemstone, etc, require Fanart in order to be useful. Home Movies which are kind of supported in BMT will not have Fanart but they should have Thumbnails. Is it possible to use BMT to create Fanart by copying the thumbnail into a poster and/or background?

It looks like the thumbnail files are all in one folder and named with the full file name, including server, path, and filename but without slashes or dots. So file \\server\folder1\folder2\filename.avi has a thumbnail of serverfolder1folder2filenameavi.jpg. So I guess this would entail copying this file to your Fanart folder to Movies\filename\Backgrounds\whatever.jpg and/or Movies\filename\Posters\whatever.jpg
New Server - Sage9 on unRAID 2xHD-PVR, HDHR for OTA
Old Server - Sage7 on Win7Pro-i660CPU with 4.6TB, HD-PVR, HDHR OTA, HVR-1850 OTA
Clients - 2xHD-300, 8xHD-200 Extenders, Client+2xPlaceshifter and a WHS which acts as a backup Sage server
