Imperial and Metric calculators to help you figure pressure drop.

This may help figure your moisture, and if it's going to be a problem if you just use a trap filter, or a simple fix.

Know that a lot of home shops have nothing except a hose attached to the compressor, IE: no filtration at all, and they get very nice finishes. A guy painting Ferrari’s for a living probably has a pretty complex set up. Who’s right?

FWIW I would say go 1/2” if you do that, but for the sandblasting. I would just move it closer to the compressor, and see how that works out, just using the air line direct to the compressor. I think you’ll find your medium stays pretty dry.
