Do you mean how to combine all of the frames into a single animation file?
It would be easier to give you instructions if you tell us the software you have, or have access to.

I always use After Effects. But there are plenty of other options if you don't. Some options are free depending on what OS you work on.
If you use After Effects I will be happy to write out the instructions for you. But I don't want to until I know thats what you need.

Rest assured though, it is a rather simple process whatever soft you use.

If it's the clouds that are twinkling try to change the acceleration cache to none in for all clouds. Also check out that you're using global illumination cache.
Twinkling might not be due to the animation making but rather wrong settings in Terragen.
