um, yes.

um, no.

yes:
in qt pro you can introduce a text track that has time based hrefs.
these are urls. user clicks and url is retrieved. Autohrefs do the same
but user doesn't have to clic. hrefs can target a frame if desired.
this is a hot spot for *all* of the frame, not parts.

so:

no. to put hotspots on parts of frame you could use cleaner, livestage
pro, ezedia qti, and there's another one that i don't remember off the
top of my head. livestage is the top shelf best one. ezedia qti is
interactive qt in the mould of imovie, and in relation to livestage is
a bit like comparing imovie to final cut pro. they all cost $. Ezedia
is the cheapest.
