Post Basic Bend Modifier

Hi,
I've had MF for a while but only just started using it.

I'm trying to do something very simple but can't get it working and would appreciate some help if possible.
I have a basic cube which I have shaped into a rectangle. Imagine it as a plank of wood or some other material.
I want to be able to bend one end of it down like you see in the first bend example in the start of the intro video http://www.youtube.com/user/Gawaine1066?feature=watch

I eventually want do this under program control, but I can't even get it working in the editor.

How do I this? Nothing seems to work axis/angle wise to get the effect I want.

ty!

Edit:
I see now, the model needs to have sufficient fidelity in vertex count in order for the modifiers to work.
Basic shapes are too low rez.

Yes the system works on existing vertices in a mesh, if you only have 8 verts for a basic cube the system has nothing to work with other than the two ends so you wont get great results, make a more detailed (where you need it) mesh and all will work fine.
