i want to be able to draw a line and then be able to toss/stretch the areas beside the line by moving it.

kinda like flextime editing in logic pro:

I have thought of this too - I think it would be much better than something like puppet warp. I want the mesh like the transform warp command but then be able to manipulate the lines with the same kind of controls like the pen tool.

You mean like the Liquify plugin?

no. liquify is great for what it does. but this tool i see as a upgrade of the puppet warp tool. where you use bezier curves to warp the mesh not pushing pulling points. you would get smoother transformations. the warp transform needs more control lines in my opinion. but can't you imagine the benefit of using bezier curves to warp a mesh? i know people are afraid of the pen tool but it would work so well.

it would be nice to have bezier curves to warp meshes but that was already discussed in another topic and is not what i meant.

It might have come up in the other thread, but have you tried Illustrator’s Envelope Distort?

I looked at the video, and it has no similarity to anything you'd do with an image. The closest you'd come would be the Liquify plugin.

okay - tell me this: how would you transform something in an exponential way?

Exponential makes no sense in this context.

Yes, the new request makes much more sense (but it's been requested several times before, and we haven't gotten to it yet).
