.QC is Half-Life Model Compiler Script

Script used for compiling .SMD (Studiomdl Data) ASCII-based game models into Half-Life .MDL model files; contains commands for specifying the model name, the SMD model file, the locations of materials, and other properties; compiles to an MDL file using Studiomdl, a Valve command-line utility.

The "QC" acronym stands for "QuakeC," which is the Quake scripting language used as the basis for Valve QC scripts.

NOTE: QC files are actually used by Valve's Source game engine, so they are not restricted to Half-Life models.
