What is what animation called?
What array part?
Not sure I follow. Please clarify.

Do you want to know how to make something appear? Either move it into shot from off screen in one single frame or use a visibility track, or use the transparency of the material.

Another one i made of 15 seconds but it was with Default Lighting of max and standard materials. It took less than 15 mins on laptop even with no graphics card.

Vray usually takes that much time?
Here the setting

Yes, there will be a reduction in quality, the trick is to find the lowest settings with the least distortion.
