Import PNG heightmap from render target, UE4.23+

I am building research software with UE 4.25 and one piece of functionality I would like to implement is to allow the user to upload a heightmap as a PNG image file and have it be rendered as a landscape during runtime.

With the most current version of Unreal Engine, is it possible to do such a thing?

I know that versions before UE4.23 had a blueprint function called “Landscape Import Heightmap from Render Target”, but what from I can tell that function has been removed for UE4.23+

If a similar function is not available in UE4.25, I would appreciate any advice on how to render a landscape from a PNG heightmap with the functions available in the most current version.

Thanks!
