Sorry for the newbee questions:

So it is the same intensity in the frame?
And when do you use it? As a fill light?

Ambient light can be thought of like daylight if you're outside. It just increases the amount of light in the over all scene. So you would generally use it to make the whole scene brighter and use spot or point lights to light specific areas of the scene/ cast shadows. Those type of lights have position and rotation values like you'd expect.

This might help you understand lighting better in AE.
