here a small test of a variant of the IRLC3 "method 3"from tutorials (irradiance map lightcache), object animation in single fame mode without any precaching. this mode can be used for still and animation without flickering.

the test scene is a closed box with one opening on one side, to make light condition more complicated, the sun the objects and one mesh light are all animated. most materials are glossy reflecting, all lights have area shadows.

the render time was pretty fast, rendered now in HD, rendert ime per frame between around 2min 50.
done with official vray 1.2.6.2d
this method is suited for indoor and outdoor animation, and might be also very nice for animated characters, logo animation etc
(this preset is also included in in next update)
