Here's what a no-VFX shot from the OCN for an originally 2K DI-based film remastered in real 4K looks like:

or

Result: Huge uptick in natural detail, grain structure and fineness, frame geometry and positioning is slightly different

What's what a VFX shot from the filmout composite for an originally 2K DI-based film remastered in real 4K looks like:

or
https://caps-a-holic.com/c.php?go=1&...124365&i=8&l=0
Result: Minimal increase in detail, but still different frame geometry and positioning

For comparison here's what a known straight 2K DI to 4K upscale looks like:

Result: Similar detail levels, identical frame geometry and positioning.

Since the LOTR 4Ks are upscales, that's why in both no-VFX and VFX shots we get similar detail, no better or finer grain, and identical frame geometry and positioning:

But that's when they are being nice, they often get creative with the digital sharpening, which results in ringing and aliasing:
