Watching the films now, it's hard to believe, but the studio did give Shatner more money than Nimoy had on the fourth film.

Nimoy's movie cost the studio $22 million to produce (it came under its $23 million budget). Shatner's movie cost the studio $32 million (going over its $31.25 million budget).
Clearly that extra money did not go to the special effects department.
