mesh editing , vertex animation, from within UE4

Hi there,

im new to the game engine world and im currently comparing engines to find my choice.
I know that especially for complex models its recommended to use blender, autodesk, etc.
But I dont like that workflow at all.
Is there a way to create custom models, drag arround vertices, and animate vertex movement? For example animate a mouth saying different syllables ?
is there an addon i can purchase that can do such a thing?
Ive looked for 3 hours now and have not found anything :frowning:

kindest regards <3
