[Spell] Prime Matron Spell Special Anim Usable?

Has anyone been able to use the "Spell Special" from the http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/models-530/prime-matron-125142/ by dickxunder reliably? I have the same problem with it as this person:

When i try to give the unit a spell and change the spell animation names in object editor to use the "Spell Special" animation, what happens in game is that half the time she's playing the "Spell Special" anim and half the time it's the "Spell" anim (the spell anim is the one where she's dropping on her knees and waving her non-whip-holding hand in front of her).

Since the 2 animations are quite different, it ends up looking bad so I'll be using the Channel animation for the spell, which doesn't produce this problem. Still, I'm curious about this, so I thought I'd give a shout.

Thanks and REP for your advice/help! :ogre_love:

I used Channel, set the animation to xxx (doesn't make much difference) and added about a second of follow through time.
