I have not tried animation directly using Manipulate, but to control 
duration, I do the animation using Animate[]  with the AnimationRate option. 
This is an example where I set the rate to 5 units per second. The lower the 
rate, the longer it will for the animation to run from start to end

r = 1; step = 0.1;
backgroundAxes = Plot[0, {x, -Pi, 3*Pi}, PlotRange -> {Automatic, {-r/2, 2*r 
+ 0.5}},
    AspectRatio -> Automatic];
Animate[Show[{backgroundAxes, ListPlot[Table[{x - Sin[x], 1 - Cos[x]}, {x, 
0, t, step}], Joined -> True],
    Graphics[{PointSize[Large], Red, Point[{t - Sin[t], 1 - Cos[t]}]}], 
Graphics[Circle[{t, 1}, r]]}],
  {t, 0, 2*Pi, step}, AnimationRate -> 5]

Export["test.avi", p]
