QT files basically contain movies, and these QT files, too, can contain various media, including videos, graphics, animations, and even movies.

The design of the QT file format is a container that includes multiple types of multimedia tracks, that can include video, audio, subtitles, or other types of effects.
A very particular feature is the flexibility to separate the different tracks, which makes QuickTime especially popular as an editor.
