First of all this is the wrong group for such questions. This group is
for discussing things related to the POV-Ray source code, not for general
questions or feature requests.

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:
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:
POV-Ray tutorials, include files, Sim-POV,
