Metallic maps question

Can the background of a metallic map be gray or is it supposed to be a standard white or black?

    It could be grey (or any color!) if it's just the background, but I would recommend making it black or white since that's the standard and so that it can compress to a smaller file size. It'll probably only make a very small difference though, if any.
