Scene creation was a significant amount of total time (67%). Consider optimizing this process first.

What should become my focus ?
Collapse object modfiers ?
Try to start to use that archive trick ?

Those warnings were for preview renders that 1 or 2 seconds. So 1s for scene creation was a big percentage of the total render time.

Those warnings can be safely ignored.

By the time it got to the AA=1 render pass, the render took 2 minutes and there was no warning, because 1.83 seconds out of 2min 25s isn't significant.
