Falloff Graph

Overview

The Falloff Graph is a concept that is common to all Falloff controls throughout the entire application.
It allows defining compound graphs by few parameters which are easy to grasp.

The above compound graph directly translates to the specific values in the control and result as follows.

Parameters

Min Origin - Specifies the start point of descending part of the graph for lower interval bound. Value refers to the global X-axis between the lower and upper interval bound.
Min Extent - Determines the endpoint of descending part of graph for lower interval bound. Value refers to the local X-axis between Min Origin and the lower interval bound.
Min Factor - Adjusts the strength of drop for lower interval bound. Value refers to the global Y-axis.
Max Origin - Specifies the start point of descending part of the graph for the upper interval bound. Value refers to the global X-axis between the lower and upper interval bound.
Max Extent - Determines the endpoint of descending part of the graph for the upper interval bound. Value refers to the local X-axis between Max Origin and the upper interval bound.
Max Factor - Adjusts the strength of drop for upper interval bound. Value refers to the global Y-axis.
Ramp - Defines the interpolation curve for slopes of the graph. Available options are Linear, Cubic, Cubic Inverse, and Smoothstep.

Note that the case where Min Origin exceeds Max Origin is perfectly valid. In such a situation the graph will become concave as well as extents bounds will flip to midpoint between the two.
