From a tutorial

this is no good. Because this works for two, but eventually I'm going to want to have a hundred. And I'm going to get to that in a future video.

I guess it means that the speaker will demonstrate how to draw 100 circles in a future video.

Does the following sentence convey the same idea?

... I'm going to do that in a future video.

In other words, "get to" and "do" are interchangeable in this context. Is my understanding correct?

"Get to" something means "reach that place or stage" in a process or journey. It can be used literally:

We will get to Berlin on Tuesday and Moscow on Friday.

Or as in the example:

[I've reached the stage where I can draw two circles]. I will get to [the stage of drawing 100 circles] in a future video.

You can use "going to" synonymously: "I'm going to [draw 100 circles] in a future video".
