Description of problem:
I can see only black window when I click on button 'Effect'. Picture returns after I click on this button again. In attachment you can find log from terminal.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run cheese
2. click on the button 'Effects'
Instead of preview of effects I got only black window.
preview of effects is shown

I'm afraid I cannot reproduce this. Looking at the log it looks like a clutter problem. Can you please try upgrading clutter, cheese and gstreamer to the latest version? :
yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing 'cheese*' 'gstreamer*' 'clutter*'
Now there is only few of unworking effects. But still, when I choose some (either working or non-woking) effect and then I try to record a video, it falls on segfault after I click on stop.
