Well there are many ways to do such things, You can creae it on an image editor such as photoshop or paint, On a non-linear editing package, such as Adobe Premiere, Sony Vegas or Windows Movie maker, or i-movie, if you are a mac user. I believe that all of these include the ability to add in text onto a background. Either way you need some form of NLE to render footage.

The title you see there is a mixture of Images, videos and Text.

I believe that's what you want.

EDIT: Alas! I forgot to mention how to do that on fxhome(my bad), you could if you wanted, create an image with an alpha channel in. The transparency would be the text.

Here is a quote form the fxhome manual:

"Object masks
This special mask type enables you to take the alpha channel of another object and apply it to the current object.
For example, you could take an alpha-ready image containing your movie’s title, then apply that alpha to a clip of a
fire. This would create the illusion of your movie’s title being made of fire."

Or if you have an absence of photoshop you could get your text(perhaps a j-peg made in paint) then manualy build a garbage matte around the text. You could then invert the garbage matte, and you have your text made on fxhome. The effect also had light spill or glow composite to create the glow. But of course I would not advise doing that as it is much simpler and easier to use an alpha channel.

So thats one of the ways to do it, but there are probably other ways-just ask tarn how he did it(i think he made it).
