After you generate a response, you'll have a few ways to go (but note: not every option is available for every action):

  • Done - Simply close the current chat with Underlord so you can start a new one. 
  • Add to script - Automatically insert the response into your script.
  • Apply edits to script - If Underlord is helping you make edits, this will walk you through add these into your script.
  • Copy to clipboard - Copy the response text so you can paste it into emails, websites, social channels, or anywhere.
  • Copy edits to new composition - Create a new composition in your project, and paste the response into the new composition.
  • Follow up - A way to enter a more specific prompt, or whatever will help you get closer to the response you're hoping for.
Underlord responses are not saved

For now, you cannot access previously generated AI responses. If you choose Close or Start over, you will not be able to recover your response; you'll need to generate a new one.

Navigate responses

If you refine your response, you can navigate through your responses within a single Underlord session. So, if you liked an older response better or want to compare results between follow-ups, you can review all responses so far or try a different approach for a previous response.

Things to know when using Underlord actions

There are a few important disclaimers to remember when using Underlord in your projects.

  • Quality of content: Underlord can produce factually incorrect, offensive, or just plain weird results. We think of Underlord as a useful helper, but we do not recommend blindly trusting it.
  • Privacy: Descript never shares your data with third parties to train AI models. While we use the best available models as part of our AI offerings, we’ve negotiated agreements with them to ensure your data is never used to train their models.
  • Tracking: Descript uses your actions in the app - like accepting, regenerating, or rejecting an AI Action - to improve our products and AI models. This never includes your audio or video; it’s just standard usage analytics. 
  • Consent: Descript will only use your actual project data - your transcript, audio, and video - to improve our products and train AI models with explicit consent. That data will only be used to train Descript models, not for any third parties; it may be viewed by Descript employees or contractors to prepare for training AI models. You can always revoke this consent at any time in your account settings.
Limits on AI Features - Coming Soon

Starting July 2, 2024, we’ll be introducing usage limits on Underlord's AI powers. As new AI features come out of beta, we need to do this to ensure the long-term stability, performance, and continuous improvement of our AI. You can see more details here.
