Using After Effects SFX in Unreal Engine?

I’m quite proficient with Adobe After Effects and I just finished this tutorial for a Harry Potter Apparate Effect and was wondering if/how can I import this effect into Unreal Engine.

Any help?

This is the effect example:

In AE, you can make 2D effects that can be imported or integrated as some sort of overlay. If you were dead-set on using this concept that was first created in AE, I would suggest exporting just the effect as a clip with alpha that you could position and overlay onto your scene. However, there would be a dozen easier ways to make this effect in UE4 using sequencer, materials, and triggers.

There is no good After Effects to UE4 workflow simply due to the nature of what the programs are used for.
