.QIF File Association 2

Compressed image created by Apple QuickTime, a video player; sometimes referenced by QuickTime movies (.MOV files); uses a single-fork format instead of resource and data forks, which works well for cross-platform applications.

More Information

QIF files are saved using "atoms," which are the basic units or structures that QuickTime uses to store information. QIF files use the same atom types as a QuickTime movie, which are "idsc" (stores the image description) and "idat" (stores the image data).

Apple recommends that the ".qif" file extension be used on non-Mac platforms, while the .QTIF extension be used on Mac platforms. However, both extensions can be found on Mac and non-Mac platforms.
