Flickering animation

Hello Guys,
I'm not an expert in cinema 4d but I'm trying to learn this wonderful software. This is my last render:

And here you have my render settings.

I got strange flickering, I thin this is low settings of global illumination. What lighting do I have there?
Illuminating texture of sky (sphere), sun (deformed plane) and one spot light.

Could you help me solve this problem ?
Is there any render settings I can decrease to make rendering time shorter?
I know I should google it and try render it with different settings, but it takes so long. Now rendering whole animation takes 18 h, and I need to deliverer that tomorrow.

Thank you for your time and attention.

Yes, it's almost certainly the low GI settings you're using. Unfortunately getting the right balance between speed and quality is a time consuming process of trial and error. I would suggest you read the help section on Irradiance Cache at minimum.

Yes what Adam said is true, using GI is a pain with render times when possible try to stay away from it. What helped me was Bumping up my samples and changing my Anti Aliasing to the Mitchell Filter.
