Hi,

What's happening in the expression is that when you have a animatable element that can take more that one value, you must express it in the form [x,y]; specifically the final values must be enclosed in [] and separated by a ,

So what is happening in Dan's expression is he is telling the first (X) value to remain the same while applying a wiggle expression to the second (Y) value.

If you needed to return three values from the expression, it might be in the form of [x,y,z]

Hope this helps,

Lars
