Dynamic sun blind

Hey there I made this sun blind in maya.
Now my question. What is the best way to get it importet in UE4 so its dynamic and swings in the air ? Did I have to rig it in maya and export it as skeletal mesh ?
Thanks for all answers.

I would keep it simple and just animate it, maybe run a sim on it in maya and then bake the animation out and done. The blinds seem dynamic because the player doesn’t know any better then you can play the animation when you want
