Adjusting strength drop-off

Our transform constraints are working, but as you see, all of these vertices are being basically glued in place. What we want is a transition where there will be a great deal of strength to the constraint here at the corner that falls off, or diminishes with distance. I want to select the transform constraint, and open up the Attribute Editor, Control+A, if it's not already open. And you're looking for a section that says Strength Dropoff, and directly above that is the Dropoff Distance, and these two work in conjunction; you have to actually adjust both of them to get a result.

The Strength Dropoff is currently a flat line up here, meaning that there is no diminishment of strength over distance. What I need to do is click anywhere here in this little graph, and create a new point on that curve, and drag it down to the lower right-hand corner. And what this is doing is it's reducing the strength of the transform constraint. The left-hand side of the graph here corresponds to ...
