Poster frames for dvd markers

Is there a way to make a different poster frame for the chapter markers? I am using FCP6 and DVDSP4 and am really new to it. Can you do it any either project.

if fcp6 is like 5 then to set chapter markers just double click the "m" key where you want the chapters to be in the timeline and select chapter in the drop down box when it appears.

That is what i have done. However, when the dvd will be created the submenu will show the marker in between scenes and I want it to show the person speaking not the spot between the two people. I hope this makes sense.

sorry i kinda mis-read your first post :)

when you set your drop zone button the only way i know of doing this is click on button to have its options appear. In the asset box select your movie file then de-select the motion box and with the slider set it to what frame you want to appear or you can type in the exact timecode of the frames.

will this work so that the thumbnails in the chapter selection screen show the proper image?
