I've been at this a couple of years (but new to APP) and I've had great results. Recently - something popped into my head and I wondered... is it possible or really a stupid idea? 
say we shoot 4 nights of subs. And each night we stack the 50 we shot.
After 4 nights we have 200 subs and 3 versions of each night stacked?  (or the last 50 + 3 subs of previous 50 stacked)
Can we take the 50 from the 4th night and include the 4 other nights (stacked integration each of each nights individual subs?) I would try it but hate to waste the time if it's totally out of the question.   Instead of  200 individual subs?

Yes you can do that, it's likely better to have separate frames processed together, but for sure you can stack each night on top of the other afterwards, so 4 integrated nights together. You can always do both scenarios to see for yourself if there is a difference or not, just once so you know if it's worth it.
