It is not only a good idea, but it is desirable. Depending on the ruggedness
of your free-energy landscape, diffusion in certain regions will be
in others. Over stretches of your reaction pathway, the collective
you chose can be more or less coupled to other, slow degrees of freedom,
thus, requiring more or less sampling towards convergence.
> Can we join windows ran for different lengths to get PMF using
inputPrefix. Yes. For one-dimensional profiles, pasting gradients by hand
is also an option. If they are continuous across the reaction pathway,
already a good sign of a converged calculation.
