Hello, I have a wiggle and I need to add a loopOut in the same property of position.

 

A shape goes left to right, in the Position property I stated below.

loopOut()
wiggle(3,20)

In this case, After effect take only the bottom code, so the shape wiggles but does not loopout.

 

How can I adopt both expression on one property?

Try it this way:

w = wiggle(3,20) - value;
loopOut() + w

Could you teach me what does "- value" mean?

I can not figure out how it controles shape to be appeared from correct place.

The wiggle() result always includes the keyframed/static value of the property it's applied to. Subtracting value isolates just the wiggle component so that you can add just that part to the result of loopOut(). Otherwise you'd end up with the value in there twice (once from wiggle() and once from loopOut()).
