How to Convert AVI to The New iPad (iPad 3)
Want to watch AVI files on the new iPad 3? According to its tech spec for TV and video on Apple official site, iPad 3 can support videos in AVI format, but it just supports AVI files in Motion JPEG codec. So you'll find most of your AVI files (not Motion JPEG encoded) fail to play on iPad 3. At this time, a third-part tool is necessary for you. You have to convert AVI to an iPad 3-compatible video format with a reliable AVI to iPad 3 converter.
This article here offers both Windows version and Mac version of the smart AVI to iPad 3 video converter. You can select one to download, depending on your operating system. This app directly provides you with an optimized preset for iPad of any generation. With it, you're able to play AVI on iPad 3 or iPad 2 etc easily and with good video quality.
Windows users can follow the guide below to convert AVI to the new iPad 3 step by step, while for Mac users, if necessary, you can go to User's Guide of Video Converter for Mac to get the details.

Step 2: Customize output settings
Click the format image on the "Output Format" pane to pop up the output format window, where you need to choose your profile as MP4, M4V or MOV; and define the detail setting for the profile according to iPad 3's tech spec.
