When rendering overlapping meshes (I know this is bad practice, but in this case it is done purely out of curiosity) You get strange artifacts.

However, these differ from the viewport render and the F12 render:

Why are these different?


Rendering has higher sampling per pixel, hence the precision, diminishing visible moire.
