Short description of error
Grease pencil lines are sometimes rendered, sometimes not, depending on distance from camera. This seems
to be caused by the grease pencil line intersecting the plane:

In viewport same line is always rendered however (both in solid and rendered modes), which is confusing.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Open file:

  • Hit render. Grease pencil line will not be rendered.
  • Move camera -1 or +1 on y axis. Render. Line is still not visible.
  • Move camera -1.1 or +1.1 on y axis instead and the line will get rendered.

This is a problem with the anti-aliasing algorithm. We are working on it.

@Clément Foucault (fclem) is that correct?

Just thought I'd add for those of you waiting for a fix.
Rendering with cycles doesn't seem to have this issue.
It's only eevee that has it. At least for me with said test files.
So at the cost of render times you'll at least still be able to get a result that works.
