If moire could be killed in software we'd have seen pro bodies without filters at lower pixel counts when resolution was in more demand. We didn't because you can't.

Actually you can.

Apart from numerous Photoshop techniques, Capture One has moire removal, and combined with layer brushes, allows it to be applied selectively quite easily. I've used it to great effect a few times.

Yes you can, to the extent that you can filter and remove noise in Photoshop.

  • Most of the time you remove most noise, but not all noise

  • Much of the time, detail is removed along with the noise

In short, moire filters exist just as noise filters exist, and neither type of filter has been perfected. All else being equal, the ideal approach is to avoid both noise and moire (or aliasing) in the first place, and avoid the need to use a filter.
