Both things are something not primarily a task for POV-Ray but for
external tools.  There are a lot of programs able to automatically process
a large number of images.  For example:

http://www.imagemagick.org/

Apart from that you seem to have a quite wrong idea on how antialiasing
works, there is no 'before and after' - you should have a look at the
corresponding part of the documentation concerning this.

For combining a number of images to an animation you can find various
tools in the POV-Ray link list:
