I dun think cross processing is dead. It more like the result of cross processing is unpredictable. Nowdays people dun want to risk the unpredictable.I'm still playing cross processing. It harder to understand the result of cross processing until you actually do a lot of dry run test rolls. The result variable to from the ISO value, the brand of the film, the saturation of colors and toning of the film. Sometimes expired film give a different result from a fresh roll of film. If you give a try you might get addicted.
